GoDaddy Breach Highlights the Importance of Improved Security

Web domain and hosting provider GoDaddy is in the news again for a breach. The latest incident involves the compromise of account credentials for approximately 28,000 web hosting customers. The breach occurred in October 2019 and users were notified in April 2020.

After similar incidents in 2019, strengthening cybersecurity should have been GoDaddy’s top priority. These days, your clients and partners aren’t going to want to do business with you if they can’t trust you to keep sensitive data and credentials safe. These smart cybersecurity choices can help demonstrate your commitment. 

Multifactor authentication is one way to quickly, effectively, and affordably throw up a barrier between your data and cybercriminals and it’s easy to see why: 

  • Use a secure way to secure passwords and other credentials. A central, secure password and login storage vault gathers all those valuable credentials in one easy-to-defend place. 

  • Strengthen your login security to mitigate potential compromise. It’s far too easy for even novice cybercriminals to get their hands on password cracking software these days. Improving your password security by building better passwords and adding multifactor authentication to the login process quickly nets security gains.  

Make sure that your credentials are protected by strong security and ask an expert for advice on how you can make it even better.
