What is your cybersecurity persona?
You may be feeling confident that you can spot a phish that is trying to steal your password. Perhaps you are diligent about changing it when you learn about your data leaked in a data breach. However, it could be that your passwords are easy to guess.
If you are doing all the right things... is it strong enough to withstand brute-force attacks?
Brute force attacks are automated attempts to try every combination of every letter, number and punctuation symbol until a password is found.
Take this quiz and find out!
Before starting, think of one specific password you use.
Now, write it down here: ________
(Just kidding, never share your password!)
We have 2 options for this quiz, which one will you choose?
"The path of the Jedi" or "What is a Jedi?"
May the force be with you!
REMEMBER: It is estimated that if your password has 8 characters and includes lowercase and uppercase characters, numbers and special symbols, it would take less than 5 minutes to be cracked in a brute force attack.
If you use a 16-character password with upper and lowercase letters, the time increases to approximately 46 million years!
Even simpler passwords with a higher character count are less vulnerable to cracking in a short period of time.
