How to create a strong password

Forget climate change or war or some sort of nuclear apocalypse – the biggest threat to the world right now comes from cybercrime. As more and more of our data is stored online and we put our trust in technology to handle sensitive information like bank details and health records, the information available for hackers to harvest is increasing all the time.
