It’s up to each of us to take proactive measures to protect our information when the inevitable happens and companies that house our data experience breaches. Although we’re powerless to prevent these breaches, that doesn’t mean we can’t mitigate the harm that we personally experience as a result of them. That’s where smart password creation and management comes in.
Too many companies and brands are still not following best practices when it comes to prompting users to create good passwords that are complex and unique. Until they do, it’s up to each of us to protect ourselves.
