This summer, one of my main focuses at work has been on security. I formed a team in May with individuals from our Systems, Operations, and Fraud teams. Armed with each of our unique strengths, we’ve been tackling topics like password managers, phishing and ransomware, firewalls and network security, cybersecurity insurance policies, building security and visitor procedures, and website security and 2-factor authentication.
One of the changes with the biggest impact on our day-to-day has been the implementation and training on our password manager. Though we signed on with Dashlane an entire year ago, we didn’t have adequate buy-in with our team members. Working alongside our dedicated customer success manager, Stewart Atkinson, we developed training materials and a presentation to educate our team on the benefits of password managers in general, as well as some of the tips and tricks the more tech-savvy team members have learned along the way. Through personalized efforts, we have increased all of our team members’ Security Scores, which is a measurement of password strength as well as reuse across other websites. We were recently featured on the Dashlane blog as a success story.
As we move further into these other topics, I will be sharing some of the best practices that we come across and policies we implement.
If you’re interested in implementing a password manager, you might as well get $20 towards Dashlane Premium.
(Oh, and by the way, the image above is one of a goofy series that the Systems and Development team took in hopes that Dashlane could use them with our blog post… But they were all a little too crazy. lol)
