October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month – and there are more stories in the news to raise our awareness of digital security. The file-hosting service Dropbox was the subject of recent news stories claiming that a list of over seven million Dropbox login credentials had been leaked.
Dropbox has since issued a statement assuring users that their database was not hacked. However, the story is a good reminder of the importance of the importance of not using the same password for every service. Use a unique password for each service you subscribe to in order to help keep your data safe.
