Digital Register -- Pack of 25


Digital Register:
A Password Management System from BankersOnline

Ideally, passwords should never be written down, but when you're faced with multiple passwords, some of which are required to be changed periodically, keeping up with them can be a real challenge. Sure, it would be great if we could all memorize dozens of long, unique passwords, but the reality is that people often leave themselves open to hackers because of the passwords they choose. What if you could write down your password and still keep it safe? By using The Digital Register and following the advice below and in the attached article below, you can!

Along with the appropriate instructions, these Digital Registers are perfect for:
  • Staff: who need to keep track of multiple, changing passwords
  • New Accounts: to be given to customers when they open accounts
In today's complex environment, individuals have three choices:
  1. Use the same password multiple places, so it's easy to remember and it doesn't have to be written down. [Never a good idea. Using the same password multiple places puts you at risk.]
  2. Choose short, simple passwords that are easy to remember. [The easier a password is to remember, the easier it is to crack. Strong passwords are long and complex, they don't use names of family members, pets, phone numbers, addresses or other data easily discerned by third-parties, and contain a combination of upper and lower case and at least one alphanumeric character. Unfortunately, long, complex passwords are also harder to remember.]
  3. Construct and use different complex and secure passwords, but write them down to track them and keep the written record in a safe place. That's what this Digital Register is for.
You may be thinking, "What if the register is lost or stolen?" By following some simple advice, that risk can be greatly reduced. For example, you could apply a simple code to passwords when you record them in the Digital Register. A simple substitution cypher would work. For example, take the first and last letter of each password and substitute a letter that is X# of letters away from what it really is. Applying that technique, if we decided to substitute first and last letters that are five letters away from the real password for the first and last letters, let's say, we would take the password big2bad3dog and write it down as gig2bad3dol. Or the password Iamer9 would become qamew9. You would decide exactly how your substitute cypher would work, allowing you to determine at a glance what the real password is.
