Correctly implemented passwords help protect valuable information. Both the complexity and the number of passwords required have multiplied. Further, it has been shown that using the same password for multiple sites or easy to guess passwords enable bad actors. Password management tools have emerged as a leading option for enhancing security to address these challenges. In this session, you will learn how password management tools can help you implement, update, and manage your passwords. You will also learn about the features of leading password management tools and why these tools are necessary to improve security. Finally, if you hope to implement a passwordless approach, we will spend time on the current options. If you are seeking to enhance security, this session is an absolute must!
- Review the various ways in which a password can be breached and attacked (e.g., guessing, brute force, etc.).
- Discuss the correlation between a password’s strength and its length and complexity.
- Discuss the best practices recommended by NIST and the SANS Institute for creating secured passwords.
- Summarize how a credential stuffing attack occurs and the dangers of using the same password for many websites and resources.
- Identify resources which could be useful for implementing security polices for your organization.
