Change your password: Learning from the Colonial Pipeline attack

by The 100 Companies

The Colonial Pipeline’s billing systems were hacked, and quickly the entire system was closed, imperiling fuel supplies for the East Coast into Florida.

A password that an employee used personally was obtained on the dark web, then applied to their Colonial account where they used the same password, giving access to the criminals.

With the frequency of these devastating ransom attacks, now is the the time to review and change your personal and business password policy. Consumer Reports ranked the best password manager systems on the market, and even though time-consuming to adapt, it may save you personally and professionally.
