Password security & password managers

In the spirit of National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), let’s talk about a security basic that many people overlook: passwords. These are one of the most fundamental aspects of website security, yet we too often see webmasters taking a lax approach to secure passwords.

In fact, the online security provider TeamPassword found that last year the most commonly leaked password was 123456. That edges out some real gems including qwerty and the always-popular password.

Thing is, everyone has their own password policy. It’s very personal and usually based on a set of assumptions about online security. Many users choose policies of efficiency over security. Even the paranoid among us have to confront the truth.

Dobbs said at the presser that even though there are more White residents in the state than any other race,  the virus’ impact on the state has gotten to the point where the coronavirus is disproportionately affecting White residents.

“We’ve seen a pretty dramatic shift where early on, (cases were) two-thirds African-American and now it’s kinda moved to two-thirds Caucasian,” Dobbs told the Clarion Ledger. “Let’s learn the lessons from the past and let’s all just be careful.”

State epidemiologist Dr. Paul Byers said young, school-age children and teens are now the fastest-growing segment among reported coronavirus cases. However, more than 60% of new cases and deaths in the state are White residents and there is a slight drop in Black residents.
