Security tip of the day…

Use a computer password in only one place! As annoying as it is to have to create new passwords for all your different computer accounts and secure systems, reusing passwords or using the same password all over the place is like carrying one key that unlocks your house, your car, your office, your briefcase, and your safe deposit box. If you reuse passwords for more than one computer, account, website, or other secure system, know that all of those systems will be only as secure as the least secure system on which you used that password. One lost key could let a thief unlock all of your doors. Also: don't enter your password on untrusted systems & change your passwords on a schedule to keep them fresh. Source: SANS Institute
