HIPAA Security Reminder of the Week

Personal Password Security

Recent hacking events at retail stores and financial institutions have made us more aware about protecting our personal passwords.

How often do you change passwords for your personal online accounts? When was the last time you changed the passwords for your online social networking sites, personal email, shopping sites, tax preparation sites, etc.?

If you use the same username and password on every site, those passwords are probably weak. Change these personal passwords at some regular interval. Use strong password characteristics. View our Password Management Policy as a guide. These actions will help you protect your personal data.
