Password policy myths and dead ends

The principle of psychological acceptability has been neglected for long in IT in general, and therefore in cyber security as well. However, it gained more and more momentum in the last years: we are not willing to pay just any price anymore for some increase in security. In this webinar we will break some of the common misconceptions and see some new trends in password management, aligned to the NIST recommendations. Security needs a preventative mindset. Develop one and make secure coding a second nature!

In this webinar you will learn:

· About the cat and mouse game of software security
· Why a lot of developers are doing password management wrong
· Which password guidelines are actually helpful in practice
· The best practices to follow when designing your password policy
· How Cydrill courses can raise your paranoia to a healthy level and can contribute to your code hygiene
