Video: How to Choose Strong Passwords

Ken Harthun Ken Harthun Profile: Ken Harthun

The LastPass network anomaly incident (it’s still not known whether an actual data breach occurred) once again underscores the importance of using strong, unguessable passwords. Using dictionary words or short, simple, easy-to-crack passwords for a master password that protects all of your other passwords is just not smart. I have spent years educating my clients and their employees on the use of strong passwords and giving them simple solutions for coming up with them. This short video from Sophos Naked Security is a good resource.
