Today is national change you passwords day!
Now that we are working on cyber safety trainings at the University of Twente, we also have a nice promotion: you now have the chance to win the book 'I know your password' by Daniël Verlaan.


November 24 has been declared National Change Your Passwords Day. The initiative is supported by the Openbaar Ministerie, among others, and is unfortunately badly needed in view of recent examples.
