Many websites require that your password be a certain character length with a capitalised letter and number, but what is the best length for a strong password that will protect your website from cyber attacks? Most websites only require 8 characters which is a security risk. We recommend passwords that are at least 12 characters long.
So, when your website developer and IT department are creating memorized secret verifier requirements, i.e. your password or PIN that is chosen and memorized by the user, NIST recommends
your platform give your users the ability to create passwords that are up to 64 characters.
What length password does your platform currently require? Have you thought about the connection between your platform’s password requirement and Cyber Security? This is just one aspect that we investigate through our detailed Penetration Test
to ensure you are not vulnerable to attackers. Engage with Vertex Cyber Security for the best possible cyber security protection in Australia today.
