Hello. My name is Roger and I’d like to talk to you today about how you can increase in your site cyber awareness within a small and medium enterprise.
When it comes to cybercrime and the cyber criminals, everyone and every piece within your organization is a target and those targets are what the cyber criminals go after all the time. So, you have to make sure that people are aware why we do these things, why you are in the process of protecting it and you are in the process of protecting them as well as your business or organization, your staff and your clients.
That is why passwords are so important. And the way to come up a better way of doing things, passwords are going to be around for long. And passwords, not only on your systems but also on systems that are being installed. So your wireless access point. . Your router needs a decent password. You better need decent password, your internet connection need a decent password.
And what I mean by “decent” is it is complex, it is more than 8-characters long, and it is unique to the piece of equipment that you to put it on because the cyber criminals are very, very clever. And you need to understand that being clever, they’re also very aware of what normal people do on the internet. And they make sure that they exploit better.
Thank you very much.
