Password Protection!

Important information about your password security.

Most of us use the same password for several different accounts and the bad guys are catching on! If one of your passwords for work or personal use is compromised, cyber thieves can hold on to that information and attempt to use the breached password on all your online accounts.

These attacks can happen immediately, or they may occur a year or more down the road. Recently, researchers found that 25% of consumers who were hit by a data breach fell victim to identity theft. That means there is a one-in-four chance that you will be targeted later if your information is compromised now!

Cyber Security specialists recommend never using the same password for any account that contains critical information, such as online banking, credit cards, or work-related systems.
