Passwords aren’t going away any time soon. Many websites and apps require us to create accounts and think up passwords in a hurry. Many of us struggle to follow the advice of password security experts. Your BBB® offers information on business security best practices.

As computing power for password cracking gets larger, it doesn’t need to be as hard as we make it. The US National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) is formulating new guidelines for password policies to be used in the US government and public sector.

The policies can also be useful for our own organizations and application development programs.
