Password1 still first

Half of passwords fail to meet security standards, according to the 2013 Trustwave Global Security report. “Password1” is still the most common used by businesses.

An informations security awareness consultancy has issued a report urging businesses to deal with the issue promptly if they are to prevent security breaches. Containing hints and tips for creating secure passwords, the report is published at http://www.thesecurityco.com/news/expert-comment/oh-no,-not-another-password-article/

Bernadette Palmer of The Security Company says: “Passwords are the first line of defence yet we still don’t seem to appreciate how important they are for protecting our information and money. Education is key, and organisations must remind employees on a regular basis about the purpose of passwords, and why they’re important – including the potential consequences of a compromised password.”
