Password diligence is important. Depending on the size and scope of your company, you can employ some painless changes. Some companies require employees to reset their passwords every 30 / 60 / 90 days. Another route is to require employees to carry key fob tokens. These small, easy to carry physical devices generate one-time pass codes. Or a slightly more challenging but extremely secure method is two factor authentication. This two step verification is an extra layer of security that is known as “multi factor authentication” that requires not only a password and username but also something that only, and only, that user has on them, i.e. a piece of information only they should know or have immediately to hand – such as a physical token.
If these methods seem a bit too intense, an easy first step is to sign up for LastPass.com. They serve as a password manager guaranteeing security by remembering just one master password.
