    Went to an Information Security seminar today and was informed about the importance of password protection in lieu of methods in managing computer and information security.

    Here are two apps that can assist you in creating and managing your passwords:

    1Password: This app will help padlock all your passwords. DO NOT have your passwords, at home or at work, written down for easy access.

    LastPass: This app helps with managing your passwords. However, it also has a feature to help you create strong, unique passwords in letter, symbol and number combination.

    There are also several other password management apps available. The link that follows can provide more information for you.

    Have you signed up for either one of the services yet? If so, how do you feel about it?

    I have. 1Password will be my password log to keep all my passwords in one place. As for Last Pass, I will be using to help me create passwords if need be, especially at work. I'm content and assured. I'm glad I went to the seminar.

    Also, I strongly encourage everyone to use two-factor authentication whenever it is offered to them by a service. Most of the popular ones do(Gmail,Dropbox, Facebook...)

    I may look a killer to some of y'all but at work I'm that trustworthy dude that people come to as the unofficial apple help desk and drop of their iPads, iPhones and MacBooks and give me passwords, birthdates and access to their most personal and private info as well as pictures.
    It always amazes me that folk are that trustworthy and no one has yet to have a really surprising or challenging password, mostly kids and parents names or birth dates.
    I'm honest and respectful but what if wasn't?

    And that's where people fall victim to their information being compromised. There was a part of the seminar where they talked about privacy control and how our day to day decisions can give easy access for our information to be used against us for the worst. I'm going to have to start using cash a little bit more, too, at certain places.

    Yea it is amazing how careless some people
    Are with their Personally Identifiable Information. Most of the times, it has to do with ignorance: in a sense that, they actually dont know how valuable their data is, on the black market.

    Yea it is really valuable knowledge to have nowadays, as companies and black hat hackers are all hungry for your personal data.

    I'm pretty late to this- the first time I started thinking about this was when this dude wanted to get info from google docs- he first had to go to his password manager and only then through the 2-step authentication process. I feel so far behind- I've only been doing 2-step
