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!

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.

There has never been a better time to invest in these valuable skills!
