Information Security Unit
Nobody has to be told that our data should be protected with a strong password. There is a simple technique which allows us to create new passwords that are easy to remember and difficult to break.
Your password should not be a word which may be found in a dictionary. Adding numbers at the end of the password does not help either – cafe1 is almost the same weak password as 123456
An example: A sentence “I don’t like spinach” could be converted into a password: IDoLiSp1@. In this case, we choose two letters from each word and add a number and special character at the end. On Facebook, it could be a sentence we usually start a conversation with a name added. Example: “What’s up Monica?” We can use the above-described method and change the sentence into WhUpMo1}.
