Do Strong, Unique Passwords Matter?


   It's almost October (or it will be, or later, by the time you read this) and, in the US, that means it's Cyber Security Month!  This partnership between Homeland Security, NCSA (National Cyber Security Alliance) and the MS-ISAC (Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center) is an opportunity to recognize the importance of information security.  It started in 2003 as a way to build awareness for online security and privacy and to encourage individuals, business and government.

   For most people, online security starts with passwords.  I've written about this topic plenty of times in the past.  We've covered strong passwords, unique passwords and use of a vault or password manager.

   Here's a great video by Allison Sheridan of the Nosillacast podcast.  I think she covers the topic very nicely here.  Take a look and let me know what you think!
