Bangalore: In the realm of widespread anti-social activities like hacking, virus and malware attacks etc Small and Midsize Businesses (SMBs) need to pay special attention towards their security policies especially if their critical information data is at stake.  SMBs usually go through a hard time to secure their information because of the limited resources, but if a hacker happens to trace out an employee’s password then even the best security system isn’t of much use. Hence smart password practices which require almost no budget needs to adopted to secure information says Kevin Casey in informationweek.



"Password policy is something that's often overlooked, but it's an important part of keeping secure in an online world," said Morgan Slain, CEO of SplashData, in an interview. "It's something that SMBs can implement pretty easily."



Following are few steps to help achieve safer and stronger passwords.



Use password wallet or password manager app



Password sharing within the organization among teammates and workgroups is been observed more commonly inside the SMBs this can be major drawback w.r.t to security issues this eventually results in weak security habits such as posting notes on the monitor, passing the password over cubicle, and digital means like sharing through e-mail, messengers, etc . A password wallet or a password manger is an application that is particularly designed for systems that require multi-party access wherein teams can automate and secure passwords. "That way it's easy to organize all of your different corporate passwords, keep them changed, and make sure everyone knows what those changes are," Slain said.
