Enforce Password Complexity
Users who can choose their own complex password tend to gravitate toward something they can remember. Those passwords might be short, common names or places, and may include their phone number or social security number. Threat actors have designed and built tools that can run through hundreds of thousands of names and combinations within minutes to guess passwords. Forcing your employees to have a stronger password that have additional complex characters will cause the threat actors to take years to attempt to guess. Common is eight characters with upper case and numbers. Uncommon would be 12 or more characters with forced upper case and lower case, numbers, and special characters – as an example.
