This is Thomas. A keen member of your team. He tries his best, even if he’s not the most thoughtful of people ?
Take his work password, for example. He’s kept it really simple by using “123456”. And using the same password across all work systems. Hey, that saves him time because he can’t forget his password, right?
And he’s not alone in doing this. 23 million people still use “123456” as their password. Which is crazy, because it’s one of the first things that hackers will try.
Not all hackers are clever, using unknown loopholes to break into your business. Most will use something called brute force, where they just try thousands of passwords until they find one that works.
Understand this: Weak passwords are the number one way to get your business hacked.
