According to the report –
Employees use an average of 191 passwords to enter 154 times in a given month, racking up an estimated 36 minutes of password data entry during that time, according to a report released today.
We can talk until we are blue in the face about the risks of reusing passwords, or using easy to guess passwords, but until we deal with this, it’s not going to be effective. In order to comply with our advice, employees would have to do something that is more than likely beyond the capacity of the human brain. Remember 191 unique passwords.
That’s not happening.
