THE BOTTOM LINE
Weak passwords remain the Achilles’ heel of strong cybersecurity. Weak or hacked passwords account for more than 60 percent of all data breaches. No matter how much money a company is willing to spend on fancy firewalls and intrusion detection services, if a user’s password is simply “password” or “123456” all of that money might as well be for naught. But people are by nature lazy, so to get them to use strong, hard to memorize passwords, a simpler solution has to exist, something more secure and convenient than a sticky note.
