The use of passwords helps to control the risk of unauthorised access to personal and WSU information. They are REALLY important. However, the use of public/shared computers or internet services presents a threat as usernames and passwords could be stored or shared inappropriately, sometimes without your knowledge.
While nothing can absolutely guarantee the security of passwords, the following advice increases password security and helps minimise this risk.
For example, you ran a marathon in 1998, you could take the phrase “I ran the London Marathon in 1998”, and, taking just the first letters of each word and the numbers, turn it in to: irtlmi1998
Or simply have the whole phase or most of it without spaces.
Then for extra security, swap in some capital letters and special characters:
Where devices or files contain or can connect to personal or confidential data, these should be protected by a password or PIN as directed above.
