  • This course has been designed for just about anyone, all that's required is a basic understanding of passwords and a desire to create stronger passwords that you can actually live with


If you're like most people you've probably experienced some pain and frustration because of passwords. This course is intended to look at new ways to create strong passwords that you can actually live with (ones that you can remember, easily type on different devices, and just generally manage better).

Throughout the course, we'll take a look at some of the techniques hackers use to compromise passwords and how you can better defend yourself against them. You won't just be told what makes a strong password, but you'll actually see some of the most popular hacking tools and techniques that are used to compromise passwords today! The course is intended to be informative and valuable for anyone using technology (that includes younger children and teens).

As our world continues to grow more and more connected with (and dependent on) cyber technology, it becomes even more important to be equipped to defend against cyber attackers. Cultivating a cyber defender mindset and skillset is not only critical for individuals but it's also important to prospective employers as many are looking to hire people that have basic training in cyber defense. There has never been a better time to invest in these valuable skills!

Who this course is for:

  • This course is really for just about anyone who wants to learn how to create strong passwords that are easier to remember, type, and manage
  • Although the course was designed for an adult audience, the presentation the course was created from has been delivered successfully to elementary and high-school students, so if your child is old enough to have a password he or she may benefit from the course as well.
