    Personal security made simple

    --DETAILS--
    Weak and re-used passwords are two of the top reasons why data breaches occur. Managing and remembering passwords is hard. There's a differing opinions on what a strong password is. There is so much information about security that it can be difficult to know what works in practice and what doesn't. In this presentation I hope to clear up some of the uncertainty, provide some easy to follow, practical guidance and also walk through setting up a password manager.
