Practice Safe Password!

Anne Bisagno

37 SECOND READ

Guess what topped password management vendor SplashData's annual list of the most common leaked passwords? You got it: "123456" and "password." Yes, again. 

     

    Even if your employees are coming up with smarter passwords, they aren't necessarily practicing good password hygiene, at least according to these statistics from cybersecurity site Dark Reading: 

     

    • 60 percent of employees do work activities on a personal device, while 55 percent do personal activities on work devices
    • 54 percent of employees share login information for their computers, smartphones, and tablets with family members
    • Almost half of employees are likely to reuse passwords for work-related accounts
    • 48 percent of employees haven't changed their work passwords in the last month

     

    If these figures worry you — and they should! — give Xantrion a call. We can help you establish policies and procedures for improving password hygiene, and even teach your employees how to generate stronger passwords they won't forget.
