I have my To-Do list in progress, with the goal of crossing off as many year-end tasks relating to my casework, law practice and and personal organization, to try to do it better. When I read a recent article on how important it is to keep changing our personal passwords, I figured that I’d better add that to the list.
The cybersecurity firm Trustwave claims that more than 2 million accounts from Facebook, Google and Twitter have been compromised, simply because of the failure to maintain passwork changes. As the article indicates, there are some people that use 123456 or 1234, and even as crazy as “yes”, or simply using the word “password” as their password. Hopefully, that doesn’t sound familiar.
From USA Today here is the article , ”Four Tips For Creating Stronger Passwords“. The basics are: 1. The more complicated, the better; 2. The longer, the better; 3. Consider phrases; 4. Use multiple passwords.
Hopefully you will find some good ideas in the article. Of course, the next big decision is where to keep those passwords so you can find them, the next time that you forget them. That is the curse of constant change and being secure!
