What have organizations got against cost-free security?
Everyone’s spending kazillions on technological security while ignoring the most basic, cost-free element of information security: passwords.
Here are the highlights of a recent password survey by SafeNet:
50 percent of employees still write their passwords down
Over one-third of the respondents share their passwords
Respondents use these passwords to access an increased number of applications: 67 percent access five or more; and another 31 percent access nine or more
47 percent require their passwords reset at least once a year
Could do better, surely?
