Data Breach Information Center

What you need to know about passwords and data breaches.

What do Yahoo, Target, Anthem, eBay, and Marriot have in common? They have all had major data breaches in the last few years. Unfortunately, data breaches are becoming a common thing.

To keep yourself safe you need good password management. Especially if you are guilty of using the same password in many locations. Hackers know we tend to reuse passwords. So when they get your login info from one site, they try it on many sites. They are able to check thousands of sites in minutes. 

Digicom’s Password Security Check will test your password against known breaches. It will also test how fast an attack can crack your password. Give it a try to test your online security. Need help managing passwords? Click here to see what we recommend for password management.
