All you need to know about password security [blogbook]
Because we are at Orange Business Services doesn't mean small things like passwords aren't important. Even more than SMEs, multinational companies have people who own pieces of information worth hacking and who are easily tempted to overlook everyday security processes. So our security bloggers thought a password-dedicated blogbook wouldn't be a bad thing...
password = nightmare
"Passwords are everywhere: in your computer, your webmail or your online bank account. Everyone knows they must be strong but we always try to simplify them as much as possible - there are so many passwords in our lives that you just can’t remember them all." And this is where things get ugly...
So, to cope with this, here's what you'll find in this blogbook:
- basic rules according to Sébastien: what makes a password a good one
- Jean-François' advices not to get lost in these rules and apply them wisely
- Vincent's tools to measure your passwords' strength
(By the way, for those of you who still don't know what a blogbook is, here's a quick recap: we gather blog posts around a common theme and repackage them so that we have all these contents at the same place, downloadable (for free!) and printable)
about our other blogbooks...
If you'd like us to tackle this or that topic for future blogbooks, please say so (in the comment form below for example) and we'll do our best to satisfy you! Otherwise, you can find all the previous blogbooks here: cloud computing, BYOD, denial of service attacks, VLAN... there are plenty of them!

We sure will! :-)
Our blogbooks are made of existing blog posts (for which we also accept external contributions). Our only rule is not to promote any company/product/service. We're only here to share knowledge. So if you still feel up to that, you're more than welcome!

April 3, 2013Ken FigueredoThanks for this post. I was also interested to learn about your blog-books. If you accept contributions from non-Orange bloggers, I'd be happy to contribute an item should you ever put together a 'connected devices' blog-book. Most of what I cover deals with the business strategy and commercial aspects of this market (M2M, Connected Devices and Internet of Things).
