Making the Case for MFA 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 (1 )
• Only 1 in 5 users uses a unique password across all accounts (2)
• 3% of people use the password 123456 (3)
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.
