Do you have a secure password?

These days we have so many passwords. Ever wonder if your passwords are long enough and strong enough? UAA adheres to the NIST2 standard which requires that passwords be at least 8 characters and include upper case letters, lower case letters, numbers, and symbols.

But how will you ever remember it? This info graphic (created by Zone Alarm) suggests you take a sentence and turn it into a password. “To thine own self be true” could become 2tosBtrue!
