How can I choose a secure, easy to remember password?

Aimed at:  Edinburgh Napier’s staff & students

One method for creating a secure, easy to remember password is to choose a line or two from a song or poem, and use the first letter of each word. 

You could make the password even more secure by mixing upper and lower case letters and adding in numbers when possible e.g. replace L with 1.

Additional information about creating a good password can be found in the separate article: What makes a good password?
