Last week, the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) kicked off its cyber health week 2022 campaign. The campaign was specifically geared towards the healthcare industry and shared tips on how individuals and organizations could better protect their data and keep themselves safe from threats such as phishing and other cyberattacks. While all the content is solid, this graphic is particularly notable:
ENISA Cybersecurity Advice
To recap the cybersecurity advice from ENISA:
“Use strong passwords, keep them secure and unique for each service, change them regularly and use a password manager. Use an extra step when you log-in, such as a code sent to your phone or a fingerprint scan (two-factor authentication).”
Applause all around. One of the best ways to protect data is to focus on the fundamentals, and there are few things more fundamental than a strong and unique password.
