Your password is one of the most sensitive information that can easily be hacked if kept unprotected. Although the purpose of having a password is to prevent acces to your accounts and files, some expert hackers have developed the ability to crack passwords.
This is where multi-factor authentication comes in. It provides an additional layer of protection for your cyber security.
Weak passwords are a serious liability for your business. The average user has almost 100 online accounts, many of which have their own password requirements. Password fatigue is a real problem and it’s putting your business at risk. It takes just one weak or cracked password for a cyber criminal to access all your data and accounts. How confident are you that every single employee is following password best practices?
- Roughly 250,000 passwords are stolen every day
- Only 1 in 5 users uses a unique password across all accounts
- 3% of people use the password 123456
The cost of a breach can be enough to put your company out of business. The average cost of a data breach is $148 per data record with sensitive information, which is $1.38 million when you consider the average data breach of 9.350 records. This doesn’t include indirect costs like a damaged company reputation, lost customer trust, and lost work time.
