So, I recently learned of an organization that is imposing new password parameters. You might want to sit down for this: the password MUST contain 3 uppercase letters, 7 lower case letters, 2 numbers and 5 special characters. Secure, right? Wrong. It’s this kind of password policy that guarantees you will find each user’s password on a sticky-note under the keyboard.
