High Security Without the High Cost

I use a secure password vault. It's device independent and lives in a secure cloud. It's also expensive, and not as user-friendly as it should be. For the longest time, I simply accepted it as the price of keeping passwords secure.

All that changed yesterday when a client mentioned she keeps her passwords with her contacts. Cue the lightbulb over my head.

It never occurred to me. My contacts are organized, secure, and with me at all times. All I did was add two new fields to my CRM: Username and Password. Done and done. We all need a place to keep our passwords. This idea makes a lot of sense.

Strong Passwords

As for passwords, the best resource for creating secure passwords was written years ago by By Bruce Schneier in his post Choosing a Secure Password.

Have a safe day!
