00:00:11,250 --> 00:00:15,900
Hello everybody. Um, this is
going to be a pretty short video,

2
00:00:16,470 --> 00:00:20,970
uh, but I just wanted
to share, uh, a secret,

3
00:00:20,971 --> 00:00:21,804
I guess,

4
00:00:22,140 --> 00:00:26,490
into how you can have a complex and secure

5
00:00:26,520 --> 00:00:29,460
password, but, uh,

6
00:00:29,480 --> 00:00:33,840
making it so that it is
easy to remember. Um,

7
00:00:34,110 --> 00:00:38,730
I don't know if, um, you
know, the passwords that you
have at your business now,

8
00:00:38,790 --> 00:00:42,390
if the, it has required
them to be complex, uh,

9
00:00:42,420 --> 00:00:45,630
maybe also minimum of
eight characters long,

10
00:00:46,680 --> 00:00:51,150
just kind of what Microsoft does
says to do. Um, but, uh, you know,

11
00:00:51,151 --> 00:00:53,640
in those situations where
you have a complex password,

12
00:00:54,420 --> 00:00:57,930
it's usually, it's difficult
to remember, you know,

13
00:00:57,931 --> 00:01:00,600
it's not natural for us to
be able to remember those,

14
00:01:00,601 --> 00:01:04,830
those kind of weird random
character, uh, complex passwords.

15
00:01:05,820 --> 00:01:09,180
Um, but when you have a
complex password like that,

16
00:01:09,270 --> 00:01:12,780
that you can't remember and you
tend to write it down right there,

17
00:01:12,781 --> 00:01:14,940
it's making it less secure. Um,

18
00:01:14,970 --> 00:01:19,770
there's also the argument that
computers are better at guessing

19
00:01:20,160 --> 00:01:25,020
random complex passwords. That's what
they're, they're more, uh, geared towards,

20
00:01:26,370 --> 00:01:31,080
um, in the end complex
is good but longer is

21
00:01:31,081 --> 00:01:35,160
king. All right. So, um, yeah,

22
00:01:35,161 --> 00:01:39,450
you want these nice long complex
passwords, but yeah, here's a secret,

23
00:01:40,170 --> 00:01:44,460
uh, on how you can easily
remember these passwords.

24
00:01:45,720 --> 00:01:47,550
Let me share my screen here. One second.

25
00:01:51,120 --> 00:01:51,900
Okay.

26
00:01:51,900 --> 00:01:56,640
So this is a PDF that we
created here and it's a graph.

27
00:01:56,820 --> 00:01:59,520
So, uh, this is representing time.

28
00:01:59,521 --> 00:02:04,110
It takes to brute force your password
or have a computer program, uh,

29
00:02:04,140 --> 00:02:07,710
guess what your password is.
Okay. So on the left here,

30
00:02:07,740 --> 00:02:10,110
we have number of characters
of what your password is.

31
00:02:10,111 --> 00:02:13,590
And on the top we have the different
complexities. So this is numbers,

32
00:02:13,591 --> 00:02:17,250
only lowercase letters, only
lowercase and capital letters,

33
00:02:17,850 --> 00:02:22,080
numbers, capital, and lowercase
letters. And then the full,

34
00:02:22,950 --> 00:02:27,570
uh, full complex here, numbers,
capital, lowercase, and symbols.

35
00:02:28,050 --> 00:02:30,690
So this is where optimally,
you know, you want to be,

36
00:02:31,290 --> 00:02:35,190
but if you say, all right, let's take, uh,

37
00:02:35,760 --> 00:02:39,240
eight characters, which is the minimum.
And if you're making a complex password,

38
00:02:39,250 --> 00:02:41,850
usually you're going to be
making them as short as you can.

39
00:02:43,080 --> 00:02:47,400
So eight characters complex, eight
hours for a computer to guess that,

40
00:02:48,180 --> 00:02:52,710
all right, not secure, not, not good. Um,

41
00:02:52,740 --> 00:02:57,660
so what if you could have a 17

42
00:02:58,290 --> 00:03:00,610
character complex password,

43
00:03:03,160 --> 00:03:07,990
93 trillion years to guess
long time length makes a huge

44
00:03:07,991 --> 00:03:12,640
difference on your passwords. So
how can this be easy to remember?

45
00:03:13,330 --> 00:03:17,770
I'm going to scroll up on my PDF
here and we're going to go over this.

46
00:03:18,610 --> 00:03:19,443
So

47
00:03:22,930 --> 00:03:27,190
the whole idea behind this is you
want to paint a visual picture.

48
00:03:27,370 --> 00:03:31,270
Your mind can much more easily remember
something when it has a visual or

49
00:03:31,271 --> 00:03:33,010
something to reference. Okay.

50
00:03:33,670 --> 00:03:37,720
So we're just going to
start with some three words,

51
00:03:39,700 --> 00:03:42,700
um, and they don't
necessarily need to make, uh,

52
00:03:42,730 --> 00:03:46,960
shouldn't make sense in just like a
sentence or those three words together

53
00:03:46,961 --> 00:03:50,710
itself. Um, but in this example,

54
00:03:51,580 --> 00:03:56,230
we have three words, blue Panda, Panda,

55
00:03:56,470 --> 00:03:59,770
and tree. Okay. So,

56
00:04:01,780 --> 00:04:06,670
um, now that alone is three
words. It's very simple. Um,

57
00:04:07,150 --> 00:04:09,760
you know, it's not complex, so
we've got to improve on that here.

58
00:04:10,390 --> 00:04:13,660
So we're going to add symbols. We're
going to add a symbol in between,

59
00:04:13,900 --> 00:04:17,950
in this example, uh, between those two
words. So now we've got two symbols,

60
00:04:18,040 --> 00:04:22,690
still blue paint, a
tree. Now we're going to,

61
00:04:23,410 --> 00:04:25,960
uh, make the middle word all capital.

62
00:04:26,620 --> 00:04:31,300
So already we have all these
characters here. We have symbols,

63
00:04:31,690 --> 00:04:33,430
we have uppercase and lowercase,

64
00:04:33,850 --> 00:04:38,500
but Lou punditry so much easier to
remember than some garbled complex mess.

65
00:04:38,950 --> 00:04:40,990
Okay. So to finish this up,

66
00:04:41,110 --> 00:04:45,610
we're going to add numbers to
this password. In this example,

67
00:04:45,760 --> 00:04:49,150
we have it at the end. Uh, um,

68
00:04:49,240 --> 00:04:51,610
it's actually more secure maybe
to add it to the beginning,

69
00:04:51,670 --> 00:04:54,610
but it works for this example.

70
00:04:55,210 --> 00:04:59,050
So this is something that in your mind,

71
00:04:59,650 --> 00:05:03,790
you can paint a picture, you know,
what would a blue Panda tree look like?

72
00:05:05,080 --> 00:05:08,950
Uh, we have a little
illustration here, but you know,

73
00:05:08,951 --> 00:05:13,690
if you created this password
and then tomorrow you

74
00:05:13,691 --> 00:05:15,610
came into your computer to log in,

75
00:05:16,660 --> 00:05:19,510
it's something that you can much
more easily to remember. Uh,

76
00:05:19,540 --> 00:05:22,960
since you can remember it much less
likely for you to write it down.

77
00:05:23,680 --> 00:05:28,510
And also let's take a look at this.
How many characters is this password?

78
00:05:28,990 --> 00:05:33,990
1,

79
00:05:38,200 --> 00:05:39,033
2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11,
12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 characters.

80
00:05:39,370 --> 00:05:41,590
So if we go down to this graph here,

81
00:05:42,610 --> 00:05:46,810
17 characters complex 93,
truly nears to guests,

82
00:05:47,950 --> 00:05:49,390
and that's going to be of course,

83
00:05:49,391 --> 00:05:54,370
much more secure and easy
to remember then a shorter,

84
00:05:55,000 --> 00:05:58,760
but yet complex, crazy password. Um,

85
00:05:59,330 --> 00:06:03,410
so that is my secret tip. Do you guys, um,

86
00:06:04,060 --> 00:06:08,990
there's still your normal, um, uh,

87
00:06:09,320 --> 00:06:13,940
your, you see what I'm trying to S what
I was going to say is you still want a

88
00:06:14,120 --> 00:06:15,470
security best practice,

89
00:06:15,500 --> 00:06:20,090
which is to have different passwords
for all your different items.

90
00:06:20,690 --> 00:06:25,160
Uh, so in those cases, uh,
you know, different password
for your computer, then,

91
00:06:26,000 --> 00:06:30,620
um, say different websites or
QuickBooks or accounting. Um,

92
00:06:30,680 --> 00:06:34,280
so you might want like a password
manager, but for a company,

93
00:06:34,310 --> 00:06:37,010
a password that you use every
day that you need to keep secure,

94
00:06:37,011 --> 00:06:41,930
that you need to easily remember,
hopefully that should help. Uh,

95
00:06:41,960 --> 00:06:44,990
that's all I have for you
today. Um, thanks for joining.

96
00:06:45,050 --> 00:06:50,030
And I will put a link in
the description to this PDF

97
00:06:50,031 --> 00:06:54,650
for you to download. It'd be great
to put it up in your office, kitchen,

98
00:06:55,880 --> 00:07:00,620
um, handed out to your staff,
but our goal is just to help,

99
00:07:00,890 --> 00:07:02,720
uh, educate, um, business owners,

100
00:07:02,730 --> 00:07:06,440
managers help make your
it better and more secure.

101
00:07:06,860 --> 00:07:09,140
Hopefully that was
helpful. Thanks. Take care.
