It’s Never Been Easier To Change Your [*******] Password

One of the first lines of defensive in a good cybersecurity hygiene is maintaining strong passwords. Technically, May 2, 2019 was national password day but it’s never too late to indulge in some improved security measures.

Adaptistration People 195One of the best favors you can do for yourself is use a password manager, like the one from LastPass.com (they have free and paid versions).

While LastPass has been my go-to password manager for years, it did have one well known pain point in that if you lost your master password, you had no way to recover. Meaning, all of those passwords you collected were lost and you had to start all over from scratch recording them.

Consequently, I was very happy, nay ecstatic, to see LastPass introduce mobile account recovery.

In English, it means you can now recover a lost password using fingerprint or Face ID authentication, both of which are more secure than passwords (details).

Whether you use a password manager or not, take some time to go through your password and refresh them with updated versions.

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
