The ideas, customs, and social behavior of a particular people or society
that allows them to be free from danger or threats.

How secure is your password?

One way to help your users understand what a poor password is, is to demonstrate it for them. With the right equipment, you can easily set up a password cracking lab for a lunch-and-learn (most likely, the IT or security department already have the required tools available).

You may also point users to a site like where your employees may type in their password and get a rating giving them the strength of the password (if you trust sending them off-site, of course).
