Is your password listed below? If it is, we strongly suggest you change it.
Data breaches, hijacking, ransomware, and other threats are in the news daily. In just the first six months of 2019, reported data breaches exposed more than 4.1 billion records. 67% of reported breaches and 84.6% of the records that were exposed from those attacks belonged to businesses and organisations. But the most alarming statistic is that a whopping 65% of those breaches were caused by one simple thing – passwords.
Whether passwords are acquired on the Dark Web, stolen, scraped, guessed or cracked, there’s no doubt that password theft is the easiest and fastest way for cybercriminals to gain access to
critical components of any organisation.
A proactive strategy for password management is an essential component of every cybersecurity plan.
