Abstract or Summary:
User passwords are the gateway to an organization's assets. When users are the agents selecting passwords, they are the key component to improving passwords. Users must be persuaded to select passwords difficult to compromise. User behavior can be influenced by information security training. This study examines the use of cognitive load theory to design the information security training on password strength. The comprehension of training is measured by an examination of passwords selected after the training.
