‘One Step, Two Step…’ this weeks Cyber Insights from The National Cyber Skills Centre

Irrespective of how hard you may personally resist it, evolution keeps on - well, evolving! Call it innovation, research and development or just the desire to make things better, evolution in all aspects of technology is happening right now. 

Security continues to evolve. Take the security of your car for example. My first little car had a key, that you popped in the door, turned it and a little peg like structure popped up so you could get in. Once in the drivers seat I’d have to lean over to the passengers side, pull up the corresponding peg and let in the passenger! - remember? It was not the most secure of locks, as a well placed screwdriver, coat hanger, or other applied mechanical device could circumvent it quite easily. Then along came central locking, pop the key in turn it and all the doors opened. Then before I knew it I had remote central locking, press a button on the key fob and the doors unlocked. Now we have keyless entry and I’m sure the evolution of car security will continue to evolve. 

For a few years now there has been an evolution on IT security, that even though it’s free and readily available to most of us, very few are using it. Most people are still on ‘the keys in the locks and watch the peg pop up approach’, by using a single password - that in so many cases is still ‘password’ or ‘abc123’.

As cyber crime in both professional and personal life continues to grow, now would be a very good time to implement two factor authentication.
