Everything You Ever Learned About Passwords Is Wrong

  • Keith Palmgren
  • Monday, February 3rd, 7:15pm - 9:15pm

Perhaps the worst advice you can give a user is "choose a complex password". The result is the impossible-to-remember password requiring the infamous sticky note on the monitor. In addition, that password gets used at a dozen sites at home, AND the very same password gets used at work. The final result ends up being the devastating password compromise. In this one-hour talk, we will look at the technical and non-technical (human nature) issues behind passwords. Attendees will gain a more complete understanding of passwords and receive solid advice on creating more easily remembered AND significantly stronger passwords at work and at home, for their users, for themselves and even for their children.
