Special Topics in Cyber Security – Managing your Online Passwords
Thursday, March 23, 2017  |  10:00am to 11:00am  |   Pettengill Hall, RM 329

Do you struggle with managing all of your usernames and passwords for all of your online accounts? Do you currently write down your usernames and passwords on a sheet of paper and keep it someplace “safe” or maybe you keep them in a document on your computer thinking they are secure?

Safely managing your online usernames and passwords can be extremely challenging and even frustrating! With so many online services available to you requiring a username and password (and all of them having different password requirements), it can be a real headache to create secure and unique passwords for each of your online accounts. It even becomes more of a challenge to keep your passwords safe and ultimately remembering what they are!

The use of a Password Management System can be one of the best tools to simplify the management of your online accounts. A Password Management System can help you with organizing your passwords, create strong and secure passwords, and ultimately have ONE password to remember!

During this session, you will learn about a FREE Password Management System that provides a safe, centralized, and secure solution for managing all of your passwords, as well as additional information that should be kept secure.
