Why Password Protection?

In the ever-evolving landscape of cyber threats, protecting sensitive information has never been more crucial. According to Statista, between 2001 and 2022, reported annual losses from cybercrime to the IC3 surged from 6.9 billion U.S. dollars to 10.3 billion U.S. dollars. And that’s not even considering the damages from unreported cases.

This alarming trend highlights the escalating challenges posed by cybercriminals in the digital realm. As technology advances, so does the frequency of cybercrime incidents. This underscores the imperative for organizations to secure every online process, especially when dealing with sensitive client data or confidential information.

Enter password protection—a vital tool in your arsenal to ensure the exclusivity of access. By implementing a password, you guarantee that only the intended recipients can open and submit the form. It’s a simple yet powerful measure to fortify the security of your digital assets.
