Lunch & Learn- Password Basics

Bring a bagged lunch or we will have some entrepreneurial food for sale. Come to learn and discuss the following topic while you eat.

The Problem:

Every year, thousands of sites are broken into, and have their password list stolen.

  • LinkedIn (June 2012, 6.4 Million passwords)
  • PlentyOfFish (Jan 2011, 28+ Million)
  • Evernote (March 2013, 50+ Million)
  • Sony PSN (April 2011, 77+ Million, passwords, credit cards, etc)

The list goes on.

James Gifford will be briefly touching on the topic of secure passwords, and how to protect yourself from the aftermath of a breach.

James Gifford is the founder of Snowy Penguin Solutions, LLC, a local software development, IT administration and technical education startup . He has experience in Linux desktop and server administration, IT security, and Ruby on Rails.
