    Chill It Password Management Campaign

    Password management tools are incredibly important as they help to generate strong, unique passwords for all of your accounts to provide a strong layer of protection against hackers and other malicious actors. Additionally, they allow you to easily manage and update your passwords, making it simple to maintain good security practices. These tools can also notify you if there are any breaches or if your passwords have been compromised, allowing you to quickly take action and protect your accounts. Overall, password management tools are an essential part of maintaining good online security.

    How Password Managers Like Keeper Can Help You Prevent Data Breaches

    Data breaches are a serious threat to the security and privacy of individuals and organisations alike. According to the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD)’s ACSC Annual Cyber Threat Report, Australia experienced 67,500 cyber incidents in the 2021-2022 financial year, affecting businesses, governments, and critical infrastructure. Many of these incidents involved compromised passwords, which are often the easiest way for hackers to gain access to sensitive data.

    Passwords are the keys to your digital assets, but they can also be the weakest link in your security chain. If you use weak, common, or reused passwords, you are putting yourself and your organisation at risk of data breaches. That’s why you need to follow password management protocols and use a reliable password manager like Keeper.

    What are password management protocols?

    Password management protocols are a set of rules designed to enhance password security by encouraging users to create strong, secure passwords and use them properly. Password management protocols are based on the latest research and best practices from experts and authorities, such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication 800-63B, which is part of the NIST’s digital identity guidelines.

    How can Keeper help you prevent data breaches?

    Keeper can help you prevent data breaches by implementing password management protocols and providing you with the tools and features you need to secure your passwords and data. Here are some examples of how Keeper can help you prevent data breaches that have affected Australian organisations and individuals in recent years:

    • ANU data breach: Password Managers like Keeper could have prevented the credential theft and limited the attackers’ access to sensitive data by generating and storing unique and strong passwords for each account and service, and by enabling multi-factor authentication and encryption.
    • ASIC data breach: Keeper could have helped the ASIC to use unique and strong passwords for each service and to change them regularly, reducing the risk of password reuse or compromise. Keeper could have also helped the ASIC to securely share files and passwords with authorised parties, and to monitor and audit password usage and compliance.
    • Football Australia data breach: Keeper could have enabled the Football Australia’s audience members to create and store complex and random passwords that are hard to crack or guess, and to use different passwords for each account, preventing credential stuffing or account takeover. Keeper could have also alerted the Football Australia’s audience members to change their passwords if they were found in a data breach or a password testing tool.
