Save Yourself From Cyber Attacks By Using A Strong Password

The increasing cybercrimes in the state have made experts understand why this year has seen so many cybercrimes, in fact, double the previous years even though 99% of the victims are aware of online transactions and their risks involved and aware of how people cheat. 


The experts have found that a strong password can make a difference and reduce such crimes by a good 60%. Moreover, during a detailed interrogation with the victims, the police often find out that they have set specific passwords using birthdates, anniversaries, or any familiar and easily guessable number. This estimate of 60% has been from Kaspersky's Incident Response Analytics Report. 


The same report shows that if users employ an appropriate patch management policy, the risk of being attacked can also be reduced by 30-40%. The report also mentioned that understanding updates, patch management, and strong passwords is no rocket science. Anyone with minimum knowledge of cybersecurity can also make patching, timely changing of passwords a habit. However, the intruders have the biggest edge because people and organizations are not used to these tasks, which is recommended to be a quarterly or monthly task to avoid intrusions. 


Head of Global Emergency Response Team Konstantin Sapronov explained how the remote working boom had taken cyber attacks from 13.6% in 2020 to 31% in 2021. This indicates that user discretion, a secure network, and strong passwords are not enough. Instead, tools that help a person detect and prevent an attack and report the incident will do the trick for people.
