“With cyber-attacks at an all-time high, it is critical that Australian businesses do not rely solely upon passwords for data protection. Strong and unique passwords are critical, but must be accompanied by identity management testing platforms that offer multi-factor authentication or biometrics. Never underestimate the ability for foreign and local threat actors to easily steal and crack passwords,” he warns.
“With global cybersecurity challenges evolving, passwords as a sole protector are no longer enough, and haven’t been for a while. If your business doesn’t do more, then you’re already well behind the curve and at significant risk,” stresses Michael.
