In today’s advanced technological world, security is our top concern to keep our systems and data safe. It is very important to create a password policy that uses minimum requirements that will adequately protect your systems and data. If your passwords are too short and not strong, it makes them very vulnerable to brute force hacking in which software systematically will guess your password. The longer and more complex the password, the longer it will take the software to guess. Depending on how long and strong your password is, it could be days to lifetimes for software utilities to crack your password.
