Managing passwords is the easiest, most impactful thing you can do when it comes to IT security. (And it’s free!)
RESET EVERY 3 MONTHS
Long: The longer the password, the harder to crack. While your account may only require 6 to 9 characters, expanding to 12, 16 or more will give you a stronger password.
Passwords to avoid: Superman, Batman, Sunshine, Princess
Not in the dictionary: Avoid single words or common phrases that can be found in the dictionary or vernacular.
Passwords to avoid: 123456789, 111111, Abc123
Character substitutions: Substituting characters for letters is a good practice but think outside of the box. Don’t substitute zero for the letter O and assume you are safe. A better option would be using the ampersand (&) for O.
Passwords to avoid: Football, Baseball, [names of sports teams]
Illogical phrases: While you wouldn’t want to use a common phrase like “ThankYouVeryMuch,” you could string together completely random words like “ThankCheeseBoatsNetwork.”
Passwords to avoid: [personal information], [social media profile content], Iloveyou, welcome
Acronyms and abbreviations: Instead of spelling out words, abbreviate them or replace phrases with acronyms that you can remember. “ThankYouVeryMuch” could become “TkYVreM.” Then add more to it so it’s longer and has a variety of characters.
Passwords to avoid: Qwerty, Password, Password21, Admin

The cloud is a growing source of innovation, but on-premises datacenters aren’t going away. The challenge is to blend the strengths of each in a way that meets your organization’s needs, using a hybrid strategy. Hybrid cloud enables a future-proof, long-term approach that will play a central role in IT strategies for the foreseeable future.
Benefit from cloud computing on your terms
The latest version of Windows Server has been specifically designed to bridge on-premises and the cloud, to help you benefit from cloud computing on your terms. Organizations are using Windows Server to extend their datacenters to the public cloud. They synchronize file servers, securely connect to cloud services, and perform backups on Azure. And now you can use Windows Admin Center to simplify everyday server management tasks for Windows Server running anywhere—on physical servers, virtual machines, on-premises, and in Azure, Microsoft’s cloud offering.
