IT Services - Password Guidelines

Passwords.  Everyone has at least a few to keep track of, and probably more than that.  Unfortunately, in an ever-more digital world, that is a fact that is unlikely to change.  

We all know that passwords are a security measure, but what does that really mean?  Think of the thing being protected as something of great value to you (if you don’t already).  Maybe it’s your brand-new sports car or that home/castle where you like to stay safe and shut out the weather and other nastiness outside.  Your passwords are the keys to all of those things.  That makes them equally important to you, doesn’t it?  Data, especially data that identifies a person or allows access to accounts, is among the most valuable and easily compromised items around, with all of the interconnectedness of our modern world.
