Show Notes

Passwords are the entry tool to our devices, social media accounts, online banking and even our digital medical accounts. Effectively, they are used in the same way that we use a key or fob to enter our homes, work premises and cars.

Despite the importance of this, 57% of people who have already been scammed in phishing attacks still haven’t changed their passwords. 

In our latest podcast, Chris White Head of Cyber and Innovation for the Cyber Resilience Centre for the South East and Catherine Brabander, a Protect Officer with Surrey and Sussex Police talk through why having secure passwords is so important and how simple it is to protect your accounts.
