  • 1. 10 Ways to Create a Really Good Password
  • 2. Is any password really secure? • The answer is two-fold: – If you’re using a plain dictionary word or words related directly to your or your interests, then no – If you’re using a diverse set of passwords between different accounts and making each unique, then yes
  • 3. Your Passwords May be Insecure • Many people don’t think twice about the security of their passwords • Most want an easy-to-remember password because they will be visiting frequently and are more concerned about getting started than setting up
  • 4. Password Tip #1 - Diversity • Instead of trying to make very complex passwords, try to make sure that no more than a few users have the same passwords for each account • Ensure everyone’s company passwords are diverse amongst each other - this detracts against an attack on multiple accounts at once • This has same effect on security as complex passwords, but makes it easier on each user
  • 5. Password Tip #2 – Account Lock Out • Disable account access when an invalid password is entered into the system more than a few times – Detracts against a hacker – If it is an employee who forgot their password, you can manually reset them
  • 6. Password Tip #3 – Beware of the Browser • Beware of browsers like Firefox that automatically store your passwords • You can go into your internet provider’s settings on your computer and deselect password auto- saving • This CNET TV video demonstrates how you can hide passwords in Firefox by creating a master password for the browser
  • 7. Password #4 – Determine Password Strength • Depending on the site, you can choose different types of passwords – If setting up a password for online banking with sensitive data, create complex password – If creating a password for a one-time online game, it can be more simple
  • 8. Password Tip #5 – Different Passwords for Different Sites • If you have the same password for Twitter, Facebook, Gmail, Flickr, YouTube, etc., and a hacker gets onto one of them, they all could be compromised – This is one of the main ways hackers get in – They try the password for one site and then all the rest • Diversify your passwords among sites as much as possible
  • 9. Password Tip #6 – Password Manger Tool • If tip #5 overwhelms you, use a password manager tool such as KeePass to store all passwords in a centralized place with one master password • KeePass (and there are many others) stores all passwords for you and makes it easy to copy them right into a login form • The master password must be very complex and never shared to make this effective
  • 10. Password Tip #7 – Paper Passwords • If you are more of a paper and pen person and don’t want to save your passwords on your computer, make sure you: – Hide the paper from plain sight – Never put the name of the website associated with the password on the same sheet of paper
  • 11. Password #9 – Complex Passwords • As stated earlier, complex passwords are best if managed well, but how do you create a complex password? – Don’t use dictionary words – Use uppercase and lowercase letters within the word – Include numbers in the password • The more creative you can get while still making it memorable, the better
  • 12. Password Tip #9 – Analyze Accounts • If you notice suspicious activity on any of your sites, change the password immediately – It may be hacked into or tampered • The more cautious and proactive you can be, the better
  • 13. Strong Passwords + Backups = Harmony • Just as important as strong passwords is a redundant backup • Backups eliminate ultimate data loss • If a password ever fails and you get hacked or lose data, a backup will ensure you always have control of your online life • Take back control with a free or premium Backupify social media backup account
