Cybersecurity Tip #13: Avoid Storing Visible Credentials

#CybersecurityTip: Literally. As tempting as it is, avoid writing down your credentials and posting them on a sticky note on your computer for the world to see. Alternatively, avoid storing your credentials in a visible document to all staff. Avoid the password spreadsheet like the plague! Without appropriate access management tools will lead to a haphazard style of credential management. All users will then have access to sensitive passwords, granting unlimited access to IT assets that is not controlled. Maintaining password spreadsheets, printouts, text documents, or paper poses a serious security risk to your business and can be shared our insecurely amongst your technicians.
