Tech Tip Tuesday – Creating a Password

For our second October Tech Tip post during National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, we would like to review what makes a good password.

Library and Information Technology Services defines a good password as one that:

  • is of reasonable length (at least 14 characters)
  • has some complexity
  • is memorable
  • is unique from other passwords
  • is not easily found
  • is changed at least once a year.

Evaluate how secure your password is and see how long it would take a computer to crack your password! How well did your password score?
