Most of us have unknowingly amassed a massive footprint of personal information that encompasses all aspects of our lives and choose to keep it stored in an extremely vulnerable centralized repository; our personal email address.
Whether its work or personal, passwords are an integral part of our routines at every level of access, and with the increasing complexity of illicit attempts to gain entry into our lives of password laden data it forces us to adapt and further enforce our own internal password policies & procedures.
In doing so it also creates additional points of user vulnerability if we continue to rely on the password storage recall techniques of days past.

How skeptical are you when you get an email, purporting to be from your boss, asking you to buy gift cards for the staff? How do you weigh the subtle red flags contained in that email versus wanting to just do your job?
For many of us, our mobile devices hold as much or more, sensitive data than our workstations or desktops. So why should adequate security on our phones be any different?
Here are three facts all business owners and employees must know:
1. U.S. businesses are the top targets of cyber attacks worldwide;
2. The frequency and ferocity of cyber attacks will continue to rise in 2019;
3. Employees are the weakest link in most businesses’ IT security programs.
To help prevent such an attack on your company, EXP is hosted a Security Awareness Training for business owners and employees.
Though writing and enforcing policies and procedures is probably nobody’s favorite area of IT operations, it’s still a vital part of your business. While creating and following set policies is mandatory for government contractors and HIPAA covered entities, EXP takes it a step further. We recommend all companies and organizations maintain and enforce a basic package of policies and procedures that includes the following points…
There was a time when strong passwords were good enough to protect your information. More recent wisdom recommends we use passphrases, which are longer and much harder to crack.
Today, as phishing attempts get more sophisticated, you must adapt accordingly because passwords alone don’t cut it […]
At EXP, we strongly believe in the web of protection that must exist to properly guard institutions and their data from these threats. This web is comprised of several things. Many of these are technological tools that keep threats from ever entering your environment, let alone being executed within it. Unfortunately, all the gates, checkpoints and filters cannot prevent human error\action – frequently the last stop on the cyberthreat train. Humans must be informed users of technology for our web of protection to remain whole.
