Veritux member Gary Chan runs Alfizo, an IT security consulting firm. His firm offers a set of free security awareness training videos that I recommend. Register here.
Sample insight from the video series that seems obvious in retrospect:
Many websites ask security questions you can use to reset your password (name of your first pet, name of your childhood best friend, model of your first car, etc.).
On all those questions, you should lie. Make up an answer and record it in the notes of a secure password tool.
There is a good chance that a hacker can find your childhood street address or favorite band or whatever, and then use that info to reset your password.
