Some advice from Sendmode on Passwords follows:-

Increasing Your Password Strength

With the best practices you can create an effective password security policy and provide stronger protection against unauthorized access.

  • Password Lenght. A minimum length of 8 to 12 characters long, with long passphrases being even better.
  • Password complexity. Your password should contain at least three different character sets (e.g., uppercase characters, lowercase characters, numbers, or symbols). Don’t Use Dictionary Words. Sophisticated hackers have programs that search through tens of thousands of dictionary words. Avoid dictionary words to help prevent your business from being a victim of a dictionary attack program.
  • Password Rotation. Passwords must be changed every 90 days or less. Be aware of not reusing previous passwords. 
  • Test your Password. Make sure your password is strong by testing it with an online testing tool. This one will tell you how long it may take a hacker to breach your password. https://www.security.org/how-secure-is-my-password/
