One way to help mitigate some of these risks is to ensure that those connected to your network have strong passwords in place. While many systems and websites provide their own rules and guidelines for creating strong passwords, some of the top 10 most common passwords retrieved from security breaches in 2017 could be easily guessed, including "123456," "password," and "letmein."
