By now you’ve likely heard that five hundred million Facebook users' personal information was recently spotted on a hacker website for anyone to purchase.
It’s also likely that your employees are using their company credentials for their personal social media accounts. Which means, that a hack like the one at Facebook, can put your company at grave risk.
Many people use personal information when creating logins and passwords for business purposes.
It’s not uncommon, in fact, for people to use birthdates, pet names, their spouses name, or where they went to High School as a password.
Much of that information can be easily gathered from social media accounts, such as Facebook.
A Balbix survey conducted last year showed over 99% of users reuse passwords, either across work accounts or between work and personal accounts.
With 80% of hacking-related breaches resulting from compromised credentials, the price of not having a strong password policy is high.
It’s important that you speak to your employees today about their use of company credentials on their personal social media accounts. It’s not safe for them or your organization.
