Password Best Practice


About This Content

This content in EVOLVE is available to all users to ensure they understand, and can communicate to others guidance on how to create and use secure passwords and multi-factor authentication methods to protect devices and online accounts.

Passwords are the most common method of validating a users' identity. By entering the correct credentials, the user is able to access online accounts that often contain sensitive information, both personal and financial.

This means strong and unique passwords are essential to protect users against attackers and attempts at password-orchestrated breach methods (i.e. brute force attacks).

Implementing the best practice and guidance contained in this module will ensure that an individual or organisation is a harder target for cyber criminals reducing the likelihood of being vulnerable or a victim of cyber crime or an attack.
