Choosing Passwords Are Critical to Keeping Your Networks Safe and Secure

Don’t get caught assuming your passwords are safe and secure.  Some of them can be cracked by hackers in under an hour.  This article by Inspired e Learning on July 17, 2019 is an interesting read.  The link is inspiredelearning.com/resource/security-awareness-tip-day/

Computer programs are often used by hackers to figure out passwords by trying various combinations until they find the right one.  Shorter passwords can be figured out much easier by cyber criminals than longer passwords.  Here is the reason why.

A 6 character password using letters and numbers has about 19 billion possible options, while a 7 character alpha-numeric password has over 1 trillion possible configurations.  Longer passwords have many more possibilities and therefore take much longer to guess.
