The Help Desk Will NEVER Ask for Your Password

This sounds almost cliche now, but the IT department should periodically remind employees that its staff will never ask for their passwords.

Our SMB Blogger Paul Mah is always reminding you how important proper training is for small and medium-sized businesses.

Passwords are typically the first line of defense against unauthorized access, and Paul highlights some pointers about password management that all employees should know about. (To get a complete overview of these tip, be sure to check out Paul's blog post.)
