Using a Strong Password

Using a Strong Password

If somebody has access to even a small amount of your data, they can use this to guess passwords to important websites, and access things like bank accounts. So, whether you are a casual social media user or the owner of a successful website, equipping yourself with knowledge on strong passwords and their uses will allow you to prevent your information from being targeted. This course will teach you what to look out for and how to protect yourself.

What you will learn

There are three different ways that hackers can attack and try to steal your password. This course aims to explain each of them. You’ll also see why you should protect yourself – unfortunately the consequences can be pretty dire. But don’t worry. There are ways you can stop the hackers from being successful and this course will show you how.

About this course

We all love films about hacking. Like when a detective is trying to get access to a secret computer and manages to crack the code just before the criminal comes through the door. These films can be exciting. But did you know, hacking isn’t just about glamorous cases like taking over government schemes or robbing banks? Usually, it’s pretty run-of-the-mill stuff like accessing your email or your online shopping account.

Engaging the learner

These days, having the ability to create a strong password is important to anyone who uses the internet. So, making the course engaging should have been a doddle, right? Well, just to make sure, we gave this course a James Bond theme and pitted our hero against a very recognisable bad guy. Because everyone loves to see a super spy beat an evil megalomaniac.

This course wouldn’t be much use if we didn’t show you examples, though. So… we did. There are detailed examples of password creation systems that you can use yourself. Not only that, we also explain how you can remember them. Finally, there’s a workbook and some take away tasks to download that’ll help you remember what you’ve learned and help you develop your password-making skills even further.
