10 Ways to Use a Safe Password Presentation Transcript

  • 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
