How Can I Store My Passwords?

This question was answered on August 22, 2007. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

Passwords and how they are kept are important enough in daily activities, but when faced with a disaster, access to your critical passwords can mean the difference of being able to retrieve your data and being left out in the cold Important passwords to keep track of would include the Administrator password on servers, backup software, and critical users on the network In addition, passwords for your routers, switchs and other key network devices are a must Keeping your passwords in an offsite location ensures that you have the information you need if the worst happens and keep in mind that your passwords need to be secured once they are recorded (meaning under lock and key!) Additionally, there are programs available that can record your important password and encrypt the contents, requiring you to enter a passphrase so that if the data is lost or stolen, your information can still be safe
