Installing Secure Password Procedures
Redmond's Brien Posey has a great feature in this month's issue of the magazine in which he presents 10 common security mistakes made by IT pros. Some of them include weak password policy, overly restrictive admin account access and forgetting when security certificates expire.
Looking over his list, nothing here is earth shattering, and it's a list of errors we've all been warned about on numerous occasions. However, if these security blunders weren't still taking place, there would be no purpose for the reminder.
Take a few minutes to brush up on some security basics that you should always be doing (but still don't). And got any basic goofs that didn't make Posey's list? Send them my way at firstname.lastname@example.org.
