Secure Passwords (Totem)
Pa$$word123, really? Follow your guide to good password management. By this point in the evolution of technology, most of us have a fairly large number of online accounts to keep track of, and to keep safe. It seems like we need multiple accounts for everything - email, messaging, social media, shopping, banking, project-managing, file-sharing, etc, etc - it’s all a bit endless.

Passwords are your first line of defense against anyone who would like to hack into these accounts. They are what keep your information safe; they enable you to keep control of your data.

But preventing your accounts from being hacked requires passwords that are long, strong, complex, unique and practical; and you need to have a DIFFERENT long, strong, unique and practical password for each account.

So how do you get all of this right? The key is to develop a good password strategy that works for you. Different password creation and management systems work for different people - this course will take you through some good options.


What will you learn?

You should walk away from this course knowing:
