Are Your Passwords Strong Enough?

Are Your Passwords Strong Enough?

Modern technology has made many aspects of life more

convenient. However, as with anything else, along with the pros there are inevitably cons. With so much of our lives conducted online, hackers are waging a non-stop war in attempt to gain access to your personal information. Strong passwords are your first line of defense against troublemakers, so make sure yours are up to par.

Strong passwords include:

• At least eight characters
• Both uppercase and lowercase letters

• One or more special characters (such as $, *, !)

To create a strong password, be sure to leave out:
• Names of any kind (your name, your pet’s name, your child’s name)
• Accessible personal information like your date of birth, social security number, etc.
• Numerical sequences, such as 12345
• Words that exist in dictionaries
• The word ‘password’

Finally, protect yourself even further by changing your passwords periodically, and by creating strong login names, as well. For more information regarding IT Security visit MOM at

    Password security is a joke. I’ve been an IT leaseholder for over a dozen different companies on various projects and the way that employees share with utter inattention for security protocol is scary. I’m surprised more companies don’t get hacked into. They all need to start using a serious password manager like PasswordWrench yesterday.
