Keep Your Intranet Secure

It’s not often that we reference baseball with intranets. But earlier this month, the two came together in the form of a security “hack”. Now this wasn’t your ordinary hack, because there was NO hacking involved! Instead the media portrayed or labelled it as a “hack”. So what really happened? Although, we are not 100% sure what went down, we do know that the St. Louis Cardinals were able to gain access to the corporate intranet of the Huston Astros of the MLB. Most say that the user’s account accessed in the breach, was a former Cardinal who went to work in the office for Huston.

The initial story was that they were able to look up the former employees password in the Cardinals database, and used the same password to access the database of his new employer. Another theory is that the breach happened due to a “Brute Force” attack, which would guess thousands of passwords in a minute if there was no limit set to password guessing. Either way, it brings up the important topic of intranet security and passwords. It is said that hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of data was acquired through finding a way into the Astro’s intranet. So obviously, if you have sensitive data on your intranet, it is valuable to use best practices regarding intranet passwords.

The Password is…… “Password”

We have heard many times through the years, “It’s the end of the password”. Other security technology has been developed and is in use by people and companies such as, using token authentication with smartphones and biometrics (finger print scanning, face recognition etc). But for intranets, these options aren’t very viable. Unless you use “Single Sign-On” (not secure!) the password is still king.
