"Take Password Security Into Your Own Hands" is Company Theme, Supported by Contests, Giveaways, Security Tips and More, All Month Long
FAIRFAX, Va., Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Siber Systems, Inc., maker of RoboForm, the world's most popular password manager, today announced its schedule of activities in support of "Cyber Security Awareness Month" sponsored by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in cooperation with the National Cyber Security Alliance and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center. Building on its theme, "Take Password Security Into Your Own Hands," the company is leading its observance with "31 Tips in 31 Days," giving consumers a variety of tips ranging from general online security improvements to better managing their unique passwords for all of their online logins.
"Hackers are not going away anytime soon," stated Bill Carey, Siber Systems VP of Marketing. "The best way to protect yourself, your finances, your credit rating, your health information, even your family, is to use a unique password for every online purpose. Unique passwords limit the amount of damage hackers can do; if one site is compromised, the others remain protected and secure."
In addition to a different password for each use, the length and difficulty of individual passwords makes a massive difference in discouraging hackers. Siber Systems has produced an infographic that dramatizes the vast improvement created when passwords are lengthened by just a few unique characters.
Throughout the month of October, Siber Systems will be staging contests, giveaways, tips and promotions to encourage personal password responsibility. Events include:
