Information Security Awareness: Creating Strong Passwords

Password guidelines have changed based on research conducted by Lorrie Faith Cranor and others. Strength in passwords comes from password length. A 20-character passphrase (e.g., glasses0nmyd3sk&wall) is much harder to crack than the traditional password (e.g., Fg84PqT9!). Make your password something you can remember (e.g., wearingPANTstow0rkoncars!), and look into password managers to help you "remember" your passwords.
