Cyber Wednesday – Create a Strong Password

Cyber Wednesday – Create a Strong Password

 

Passwords are often the only protection we have against hackers. Having a strong password is vital to protect our information. One way to create a strong password is by using passphrases. A passphrase is generally longer than a password, includes multiple words, plus numbers and symbols. Most modern software can incorporate spaces into the passwords making a phrase easier to remember and harder to guess. One example of a passphrase is: “CWUgoWildcats!1891!” (Do not use this example!) which uses 19 characters and is relatively easy to remember.
