October Is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month

October Is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month

It’s #NSCAM, Keepies! What is NSCAM, you ask?

It stands for National Cyber Security Awareness Month, and it’s the reason October is our favorite month out of the year. What could be better than 31 days devoted entirely to promoting safety online?

The National Cyber Security Alliance has created a great website just for the occasion, featuring valuable information to help individuals, families and businesses practice safer online habits. Here are some NSCA tips with Keeper tricks to solve them!

NSCA TIP: Secure your accounts. Ask for protection beyond passwords. Many account providers now offer additional ways for you verify who you are before you conduct business on that site.

KEEPER TRICK: Enable Two-Factor Authentication.

 

NSCA TIP: Make passwords long and strong. Combine capital and lowercase letters with numbers and symbols to create a more secure password.

KEEPER TRICK: Utilize Keeper’s random password generator (the dice next to password fields).

 

NSCA TIP: Unique account, unique password. Separate passwords for every account helps to thwart cyber criminals.

KEEPER TRICK: Make a new Keeper record for every account, each with its own password.

 

NSCA TIP: Keep it safe. Everyone can forget a password. Keep a list that’s stored in a safe, secure place away from your computer.

KEEPER TRICK: WIth 256-bit encryption, Two-Factor Authentication and perfect forward secrecy, your Keeper Data Vault is a whole lot more secure than a list on a piece of paper.

 

NSCA TIP: Back it up. Protect yourself against data loss by making electronic copies of important files, commonly referred to as a backup.

KEEPER TRICK: Backup passwords to the Cloud Security Vault, and store encrypted copies of important documents with Secure File Storage.
