Are you concerned about the strength of your password? Start by completing a password analysis, specific and relevant to your organisation.

Examples of questions to ask in the analysis:

  • Do you share your passwords? If yes, who has your password?
  • How many places have you used your password? Can you list them?
  • What information have you password-protected? Would someone be at risk if that information was hacked?
  • When last did you change your passwords?
