The password Episode!  It’s episode 30!

Major password breaches in the last few months:
Brute force attacks on passwords is the #1 way we break into companies during pentests! Want to see the poor passwords people choose? SkullSecurity has very good lists from previous breaches.  Looking for more information? Tom wrote a white paper on how easy it is to profile user passwords on social networks.
The password problem.  Users continue to make poor password choices. Why? 
  • Too many to remember?
    • It’s easier to use the same password for each site
    • Also the same user id and email
  • Failures in user awareness?
  • Users are not provided the technology to help
  • Social networks and other sites make it easy to choose weak passwords, little adoption of two factor authentication because users will complain
  • Mobile apps are not designed to constantly enter passwords.  This is why you “stay logged in”.
Worse case scenario?
What is the solution?
