Don’t Be Held Hostage

There are some very important keywords that are part of your network. If you do not have them documented, then your IT person can hold your network hostage.

Whether you are working with in-house IT, a one-man shop, or an IT service provider, situations can occur where you want to have your critical passwords. There are myriad ways your IT person could become unavailable. He could even win the lottery, buy his own island and never speak to you again.

The reason does not matter. The point is you would be out of luck if you do not have a copy of your critical passwords. Those include:

  • Domain admin passwords
  • Firewalls
  • Switches
  • Anti-virus management consoles
  • Backup management consoles
  • Your public DNS records
  • Your domain registrar site
  • Your Website Management consoles
  • Your software application (CRM, ERP, accounting software, etc.)

So, be sure to document your passwords and store them securely. You will be very glad you did if you ever need them.
