Consumers Practice Poor Password Habits

Employees are encouraged to manage a growing collection of online accounts.  They create weak passwords and reuse these passwords across multiple sites.  Consumers are careless about password creation, management and safety.  The defenses around personal and corporate data inevitably start to deteriorate.

According to CSIdentity, here are some key findings.

  • 61% of consumers reuse passwords among multiple websites
  • 54% of consumers have only five passwords or less
  • 44% of consumers change their password only once a year or less
  • 89% of consumers feel secure with their current password management and use habits
  • 21% of consumers have had an online account compromised

The average consumer takes minimal action to secure online accounts.  To mitigate the effect of weak passwords, businesses should consider ongoing education, monitoring and authentication techniques.

Cybersecurity News

Companies have come a long way in their ability to ward off internal and external cybersecurity threats. Guarding devices and online data is an ongoing effort.  There were a total of 781 reported data breaches in 2015 which represents the second highest year on record since the Identity Theft Resource Center began tracking breaches in 2005.  It’s clear that businesses must make it a priority to protect their own, their customers’, and their employees’ private information.

Unfortunately, work cybersecurity knowledge and habits still lag behind. Though some incidents stem from organizations’ subpar planning and systems, the majority come from employee error.  Being aware of IT best practices isn’t enough; cybersecurity is reflected in the many technology decisions employees make daily, whether it’s changing logins regularly, avoiding predictable passwords or dodging phishing attempts.  In 2014, the Internet Crime Complaint Center received 269,422 complaints with an adjusted dollar loss of more than $800 million.  Despite a widespread sentiment that end users are more tech savvy than ever before, reckless behavior persists.

Research shows that 60% of employees use their work mobile device for personal activities. Ninety-one percent of employees connect their laptop/mobile to public Wi-Fi networks. Forty-eight percent of employees have at least 10 logins, but only 34% have at least 10 unique logins.  MOEbiz suggests using multiple passwords and using an app to keep track of passwords.
