Simple Passwords Still Leaving Too Many Phone Systems Exposed

Posted on Oct 31, 2016 in Jeff Nolte's Blog

Phone system hacking can leave you with a huge long distance bill and provide criminals with access to other systems on your network. As one of our clients found out recently, the use of an easy-to-guess password can wreak havoc.

Here are a few tips on devising effective passwords:

  • Do not use a phone number or extension as the system password.
  • Use a random number generator to design a password.
  • If your password is easy to remember, then it is no good. Passwords that you can’t remember are best.
  • When people leave your organization, immediately revoke access privileges to phone and IT systems.
