InformationWeek: Password security advice

10:00 CET, 30th June 2011 By Secunia.

In the InformationWeek article, ‘Passwords: Tips for Better Security’, Matthew J. Schwartz talks about how to stay safe in the cloud by setting security policies and processes.

To reuse your password on different sites is just the worst thing you can do. Look at all of the compromises of websites this year – there's the risk that they'll lose your account, and once your password is out there and associated with your email address, you probably won't know it's been stolen until they've heisted something."
