Password and Passphrase Secuity

Why is password and pass phrase security important?

Passwords have recently become easier to compromise by attackers and the recommendation is to use passphrases instead.  A passphrase is a string of words or sentence that is easy to remember, easy to type and long enough that they are hard to compromise by attackers. 

Best Practices

•    Use Passphrases – Easy to remember, harder to guess, faster to enter!
•    Do NOT share your passwords
•    Use multi-factor authentication when available
•    Use different passwords on different systems.
•    Don't use passwords that are based on personal information that can be easily found on social media.
•    Use the longest password or passphrase permissible by each password system.
