World Password Day🔐A Call for Strong Password Habits

Did you know security experts emphasize the necessity of using "strong password usage and protection" today, May 1st, worldwide? Due to their ubiquitous presence in the digital ecosystem, passwords have become the primary means of accessing our secure online environment. Despite this, we may not give digital security hygiene any thought. Often, the hidden value we believe to be ours alone may disclose a particular thinking about one or more of our unique characteristics from a certain period in time, a passion, or even our identity.

Who, in the modern, privacy-conscious digital world, do you believe is in charge of protecting your password? 
  1. Is that just the two of us? 
  2. Is that the duty of the developers? 
  3. Is it the role of a security/quality analyst? 
  4. Is it a problem for the product or solution designers/architects? 
  5. Is that the job of the network/system administrator? 
  6. Alternatively, it is everyone's duty! 
Examining some data taken from nationaltoday.com's World Password Day

The following are some crucial links for you to look at:
Although it may appear mysterious or ironic, many of us may use the same password across several accounts, which might result in password spraying. What can we do about this today, then?
  • Observe the day, alter your passwords frequently, and do so if you feel suspicious. 
  • Encourage your friends, family, and coworkers. 
  • Use hidden vaults or secure credential managers, and create one-of-a-kind passwords. 
  • Make a virtual barrier that separates official and personal accounts. 
  • Construct or put into place robust, reliable authentication systems. 
  • Steer clear of sticky notes. 
  • Sharing does not imply caring when it comes to passwords!
When Intel first commemorated #WorldPasswordDay on this day in 2013, following the lead of security researcher Mark Burnett, the hashtag saw a major increase in visibility. Oh no! Where are we when the entire world is going passwordless?
