Password security training - our latest efforts
Here is a 2 minute simple audio/video presentation I created to teach students about passwords.
It is titled 5 things you need to know about passwords. The goal was to do something short, and to the point. Things students could walk away with.
We did this during our week of welcome day on the quad, as they call it. Over 200 outdoor booths from local vendors, and USU clubs, organizations and departments. We have found that we can reach more students at this event than any other out there.
We draw them in by offering free Aggie Ice Cream (is is the best). We Served 25 gallons of ice cream to about 950 students.
So students came to our large canopy where they watched this short 2 minute video on a 70 inch screen. We had amplified speakers.
After watching this they were given a ticket for a free aggie ice cream cone located in the back of the tent/canopy.
We ran for 3 hours from 10:30 until 1:30 when we ran out of ice-cream. We had a non stop line.
Now the funny thing. Our security team was the ones there showing the video, and interacting with the students. Towards the end, one of the security team members started asking students " So what is your password" 85% would not tell him but the other 15% started too.
Only thing we would do different was to shorten the video to 90 seconds. That would of been perfect for our ice cream scoop ability rate. We had about 15 students watch the video at the same time.
