Password Security

Passwords are the bane of our existence. You can’t live with them and you can’t access your stuff without them. How many passwords do you have? Are they all different and do you change them regularly? Do you use the same password for all of your social media accounts?

Passwords are like a toothbrush, get a good one, don’t share it, don’t leave it in strange places and change it regularly.

Today, there are many sites for which a simple, quite memorable password isn’t enough.  You must include letters, numbers, a character from the Greek alphabet and a lower case hieroglyphic.

And then there are those annoying “security questions”.

What is your favourite movie? -Depends what kind of mood I am in.

What was the name of your first grade teacher? – Seriously?! I can’t remember what I had for breakfast.

What is your mother’s maiden name? – Hold on a minute, I know better than to share that information in such a willy-nilly manner!

Users are given tips and tricks to create stronger passwords, including how to use a password manager to aid in password recall. Hands-on practice helps employees better understand the concepts behind creating strong passwords.
