1. End the random algorithmic complexity. Stop enforcing unnecessary password complexity requirements for accounts (a mix of special characters, numbers, and upper case letters).
2. Remove periodic password reset requirements. This is one of the biggest frustrations for employees who are forced to change their passwords multiple times per year.
3. Make daily screening of new passwords against lists of common or compromised passwords mandatory. Password screening(aka password filtering or monitoring) is a critical step that organizations must factor into their cybersecurity strategy.

Password Policy Best Practices 2021 MetaCompliance


Preview
2 hours ago

1. Increase password length and reduce the focus on password complexity. In the past, advice on password security has focused heavily on the creation of complex passwords, but this often leads to the reuse of existing passwords with minor modifications.
2. Screen passwords against blacklists. Password reuse is a common problem and according to a Google/Harris survey, 52% of people reuse the same password across multiple accounts.
3. Eliminate regular password resets. Many organisations require their employees to change their passwords at regular intervals, often every 30, 60 or 90 days.
4. Allow password copy and paste. NIST has revised its previous guidance and now recommends the use of ‘copy and paste’ when typing in a password. This helps promote the use of password managers which undoubtedly increases security by enabling users to generate longer passwords which are more difficult to crack.
5. Limit Password attempts. Using brute-force attack, hackers may attempt to breach an account by systematically logging in and trying every possible combination of letters, numbers, and symbols until they work out the right password combination.
6. Don’t use password hints. Password hints are frequently used by organisations to help their users remember complex passwords. It may be a simple prompt or the user is required to answer a personal question such as ‘what city were you born in?’
7. Use Multi-Factor Authentication. Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is one of the most effective ways to provide additional protection to a password-protected account.
8. Train staff on password best practice. There’s lots of conflicting advice on what constitutes a secure password so it’s crucial that your staff understand best practice and are fully versed on what your password policy requires of them.

7 New NIST Password Guidelines You Need To Know – Acentec


Preview
9 hours ago

1. Use Longer Passwords. NIST password recommendations suggest that users should create manual logins that are eight characters or longer. If you use a password generator, the institute recommends a six-character minimum.
2. Eliminate Password Resets. It’s a standard practice to require employees to change their password regularly. However, NIST password standards warn that this practice can do more harm than good.
3. Keep It Simple. When creating an online account, many systems will guide users in conforming to network policy. For instance, the system normally will not let a user create a new account unless it contains a mix of characters.
4. Deploy a User-Friendly UX. Most websites do not allow users to see their passwords when they log in. The NIST recommends changing this policy and allowing viewers to see their passwords as they type.
5. Do Away With Password Clues. Many secure accounts enable – or even require – users to create password hints for when they forget their log on. This service can prevent users from the need to create a new password if they forget it.
6. Limit Password Attempts. Sometimes, employees need a few attempts to log into their accounts. However, you must limit the number of attempts that users can make before the system locks them out of their accounts.
7. Ban SMS Assisted Two-Factor Authentication. Multi-factor authentication is highly effective at preventing hackers from compromising network passwords.
