Random Fun – Password Rules Cheatsheet

By Jen McCown, 2010/08/17

Piggybacking tangentially off of Tim Mitchell’s (blog, Twitter) SSC editorial Turn a Bad Job into a Good Experience…yesterday I got some user questions about the department’s new password policy.  The policy is admittedly complex, especially considering half the place had been using the “kid’s name and ‘password’ scribbled on a post-it” philosophy of security. And, the new policy had been explained with a series of densley-packed PowerPoint slides.

So, I did what any good DBA would do: I cannibalized my comic strip into a The Oatmeal-style cheatsheet:

Sometimes, you gotta make your job fun, and you get to be useful at the same time.

Happy days,

Jen McCown
