Sabotaging corporate security initiatives
Whether accidental or intentional, an employee’s online activities can make or break a company’s cybersecurity strategy. Take password usage as one example. Employees create passwords they can easily remember, but this usually results in weak security that hackers can bypass with brute force attacks. Similarly, individuals who use the same password to protect multiple portals — like their bank account, email and social media — risk compromising both their personal and work information.
To reinforce strong password habits, some employers have adopted biometric passwords, combining ease-of-use with security.
