As military spouses, you’d think we’d know a thing or two about practicing good INFOSEC. Uh wait, you know what INFOSEC is, right?
Well, if not, never fear, I consulted the oracle of everything-you-ever-wanted-to-know, the omnipotence that is Wikipedia:
Information security, sometimes shortened to InfoSec, is the practice of defending information from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, perusal, inspection, recording or destruction.
Now that we’re on the same sheet of music, I’ve got to tell you how excited we are about being brand ambassadors for LionLock– one of the coolest tools for small business we’ve come across in a long time. With more and more military spouses are seeking careers in small business and virtual work environments (like our team here at MSB New Media and NextGen MilSpouse), we know how challenging it can be to maintain rock-solid INFOSEC when it comes to protecting our countless user ids, passwords, and other sensitive information we use to access our lives online.
So what is LionLock?
Other than crazy awesome, here’s what LionLock does:
LionLock encrypts and stores all of your company Secrets in super-secure virtual vaults. “Secrets” are anything from online account passwords to software licenses, account numbers, pin codes, credit card numbers, wireless passwords, or even employee information just to name a few. Rather than dig through a pile of sticky notes (not cool and totally unsafe), all of your sensitive information is locked up using AES-256 encryption (read: the same level of encryption the government uses for Top Secret documents).
Because LionLock is a cloud-based application, you can easily access your Secrets via a web-browser or mobile app. And if you need to share your Secret with a colleague or client, it’s as simple as adding them as a team member on your account.
Super cool military spouse tool bonus? Personal vaults. You and your team members will each have access to a personal vault to hold your own personal Secrets, like the logins for your home cable or online banking accounts.
We’ve been using LionLock as a team for about 4 months now, and I have to say that we’ve finally been able to abandon our old and unsafe habits when it comes to sharing access to passwords, accounts, software license keys and more. Gone are the sticky notes, password spreadsheets, and the daily question- “what’s the password to X again?”
Don’t just take my word for it, take LionLock for a spin…FOR FREE! LionLock offers a free account to store up to 25 passwords.
