Creating and Remembering Killer Passwords 1

Passwords are the bane of our modern existence. Why the hell haven’t we figured out a better way to prove who we are? Today is the first in a series of educational shows that I’ve dubbed Castle Defense 101: Defending Your Digital Drawbridge. In our inaugural session, we’ll take a deep dive into the problem of passwords. What really makes a good password and how do I choose one? How can I possibly remember all these passwords? How often do I need to change my password? Why do we even need passwords, anyway – can’t we just use fingerprints or something? I will answer all of these questions and then some. I’ll even tell you why you should only ever know one single password! And finally, I’ll tell you how you can win a free copy of my book, Firewalls Don’t Stop Dragons!

Firewalls Don’t Stop Dragons:
A Step-By-Step Guide to Computer Security for Non-Techies

Carey Parker began programming computers in middle school when personal computers were just starting to become popular. For years, these twin interests percolated until he attended Purdue University and he learned you could get paid to do this stuff – it was called Electrical Engineering! After obtaining a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in EE, Carey wrote software for multiple companies, large and small. In recent years, particularly after the Edward Snowden revelations in 2013, he became deeply concerned about computer security and privacy. In 2014, he combined his passion for computers, cybersecurity and fantasy novels with the long-time desire to write the book: Firewalls Don’t Stop Dragons.
