Tech Tips


We recently had a customer report being tricked into sending money to the wrong place. We have seen an increase in the amount of this kind of activity since the pandemic began. I think the hackers realize that in the current environment companies are readjusting to a remote workforce. They are exploiting gaps in communications because of the loss of in personal interaction. This is creating new targets of opportunity.

Companies and employees (through both business and personal activity) are producing a wealth of information for hackers to gather every day. They then use this knowledge to craft targeted attacks against employees.

So how do I create secure passwords? My method is very simple yet generates very complex passwords. It starts with a number that you will never forget such as your social security number, a 10 or 7 digit phone number, the combination of 2 digit birthdays. For demonstration purposes I'll use 123-4567. You will also need a starting character or number, I'll use the letter "a". Now all you need is a keyboard and the ability to count.



RAID 1 consists of an exact copy (or mirror) of the data across two disks. The resulting data storage capacity is equal to the capacity of the smallest disk.  This configuration is fault tolerant to the failure of one disk.

So now that you've created a really great password what do we do with it? If we use a single complex password we still run the risk of a hacker getting this password and having access to everything. So we need a bunch of secure passwords.
