The first protection that your data has is password against online data thieves as well as against the people that intent to steal your data physically. But, if your password is so simple that even a kid can crack it with ease, you have no right to blame hackers or other data thieves as you yourself did not protect it properly. A security firm conducted a research on 2 million stolen passwords of the social websites such as Facebook, Twitter and sites like Yahoo and Google. As all the computer users around the world are very well aware of the cleverness and the bitterness of the e-criminals, still, the most popular password that users set was “123456”.
This simple password was found more than 15000 times in the database, which is simply astonishing. The problem with the computer users today is that there are a number of online accounts that a single person operates. It is quite tough for people to memorize that number of different passwords. But, there is no excuse for setting such simple passwords. The tech experts have given some guidelines that are to be followed to set up a password. A strong password is a complex combination of lowercase along with uppercase letters, some numeric characters and symbols make the password even stronger.
You have to remember all those combinations of small and capital letters with numbers and symbols, if you try to write them somewhere or save it in soft copy, these may get leaked. It is also important that you set a password in strong data security software such as Folder Lock whose latest version has the strongest security algorithm and it is solely a data security solution for your data. This software is also available in different Operating Systems such as Android, Windows Phone OS and iOS. But, you have to set up a strong password for that, which is really tough to be guessed.
Another astonishing fact is that the generation that is the most tech savvy, contributes the most in data leakage. A cloud company polled from thousand employees about their habit of United States and Canada and the poll showed them that 37 percent of the employees that did not have any sort of data protection were aged between 20 to 29. This generation is also the one that loses the number of unprotected portable data storing devices. That is very shocking as any sane man would think that this generation is the most educated one with respect to the computer technology.
On the other hand, the generation that is not known for the i.e. aged between 30 to 65 years seem to be more careful in securing their data. More than 50 percent of the employees use data security measures to protect their official data. It is necessary to keep your data secure, if you are in your 20s, you are not likely to take any security precaution that you might not be taking. Keeping your password protected and setting up strong password for that can help you secure your data, so opt for data security measures and strong password.

Tom Finan on human imperfection and cyber security culture
A craftsman never blames their tools. It is not the systems that ultimately fail cyber security professionals- it’s the people. Insider threats do abound but more often than malfeasance, misfeasance is the key to a breach. It wasn’t the firewall that failed Capitol One, it was a misconfiguration. Tom Finan dives in on culure vs. strategy quoting both Peter Drucker and…Barbara Streisand.
Covid 19 has changed 2020 in unprecedented ways in how we work, live our lives, and measure Cyber Risk. Listen to Episode #141 of Task Force 7 Radio as the Cyber Growth Leader from Willis Towers Watson, Tom Finan and Co-Host Andy Bonillo dive into how the “Cyber Security Superheroes” are working together to manage the human element during the pandemic. As claims data shows, effective Cyber Risk prevention and mitigation is largely a people problem. In response, companies need to assess and analyze the elements of their cultures that shape both positive and negative cyber attitudes and behaviors that makes the human element one of the largest risks to a company.

Axio announced a strategic partnership with cybersecurity consulting firm Archer. This partnership will merge Archer’s expertise in critical infrastructure protection with the Axio360 platform and allow clients to measure cyber risk exposure in financial terms and manage their cybersecurity program from a holistic point of view.
The Axio360 platform will assist Archer’s clients in identifying cyber risks across business units and threat vectors that may not have previously been considered. The platform estimates all-in costs of exposure and evaluates how specific controls and mitigations will reduce risk.
“The Axio platform was built to fundamentally redefine how organizations solve cybersecurity problems. Our intention is to enable business-centric decision-making by putting the risk in financial terms,” said Brendan T. Fitzpatrick, Senior Vice President of Channels & Partnerships for Axio.
“Our operating system aligns all key constituents and delivers clarity in real-time. This partnership with Archer allows our software to make critical infrastructure safer and more secure.”
“This partnership allows our asset owners to receive tailored recommendations from Axio and our dedicated team. For the first time, our clients will be able to measure their cybersecurity program and benchmark it across their industry peers,” stated Patrick C. Miller, Managing Partner for Archer.
“This collaboration will help the overall assessment and understanding of cybersecurity risk for critical infrastructure.”
Axio360’s methodology and software empowers organizations to continuously answer the four most critical questions for cyber risk:
- What’s my exposure in financial terms?
- How should I manage my cyber program?
- Do I have the financial ability to recover?
- Where should I invest?
