World Password Day
Thursday 2nd May 2019 is World Password Day! World password day serves as an annual reminder of the importance of cyber security and keeping our personal information safe online. Each year, over 30 million people answer surveys that have been created by one of over 70,000 Webropol users, which is a lot of data to protect!
In this article, we will explain some of the data security measures Webropol uses to protect your information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.
