Want to keep your private information PRIVATE? You’re your own best defense against hackers. Information Technology Services strongly suggests you have a unique password for each of your important accounts so that if one is compromised, the attacker won’t have immediate access to everything.
Don’t share your passwords with anyone, don’t use biographical details to create them, and don’t leave your password in an obvious location where it can be stolen, such as under your keyboard, or taped to your monitor or wall. If you write it down, lock it up.
