Information Security Awareness: The Topic Is Passwords

Do you remember a time when you rarely heard the words “data breach?” Now they are happening all the time, all over the world, perpetrated by people and organizations. According to Data Breach Today, 2016 was filled with reports, culminating in 4.2 billion credentials stolen. And those are the ones we know about. While much of this is due to phishing, many instances could have been prevented by strong passwords. Please watch this video (it’s under four minutes, packs a lot of info, and it’s fun) about how to create strong passwords and passphrases (even better!). Please share this video with your students.
