One of the themes for National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) is Lock Down Your Login.  By now, you should know that using a simple password is just asking for trouble.  Complex passwords, or better yet, passphrases are preferred.

However, beyond just a strong password, it’s best to use another authentication factor.  It would be a randomly generated code from a token device, a biometric or a one time code sent to your smartphone.

I encourage you to review this excellent resource at www.lockdownyourlogin.org for step by step instructions for securing several popular online sites like Facebook, Google, Salesforce and more.  Check out the tips and explore the rest of the site by clicking on the menu icon in the upper right of the site.
