July 30, 2017
Earlier this year there were rumors that John Podesta's email password was hacked.  Many passwords are easy to crack when users are not following the correct procedures.
 

Password Strategy

 
  1. Change your password every 60 - 90 days.
  2. Use a 12 character password (takes 200 years to crack)
  3. Use a combination of Upper Case, Lower Case and special characters.
  4. Be aware of phishing emails requesting your personal information such as user name, password, social security number, etc.
  5. Never write down your password.

Thanks and a hat tip to Techworm.
