Using complicated passwords for everything is annoying. However, the one account you want to make sure has a very complicated, long, hard-to-type password is your e-mail account.

Why is your e-mail account so important? First, this is a direct gateway to all your employees, clients, friends and associates. Now a hacker can use your e-mail to steal from all of them.

Second, your e-mail is used to reset passwords on everything. Bank accounts, financial software, CRMs, etc.

Hackers even rummage through all your contacts, appointments and notes you store in your Outlook. Think about all the information they’d get access to!
