As cyber threats evolve, we face growing email security challenges. Hackers and cyber criminals relentlessly continue to attack businesses as users continue to fall for email scams. That’s why we must continue to be aware of the best practices for securing our email.
Did you know that over 80 percent of company data breaches are caused by poor passwords?
According to a recent study:
- Over 555 million passwords have been stolen by hackers in the last 5 years
- 44% of users reuse their passwords across personal and business-related accounts
- 31% of users have used their child’s name or birthday for their passwords
One of the biggest challenges for businesses is getting their users to use strong, unique passwords that are hard to guess, and this is made worse by the fact that users tend to reuse passwords across multiple accounts, making them an easier target for cybercriminals.
