“Survey of more than 1,000 professionals reveals that most think their work password practices are secure, but the reality of the situation is anything but. Nearly half admit to password sharing, more than a third say they write their passwords on paper, and one in four said they still have access to accounts from past jobs. The survey, performed by passwordless security company Beyond Identity, suggests a need for businesses to tighten up their password policies, but with an important caveat: Making the process too laborious for employees means that they’ll just find a way to circumvent the rules. With 45.6% of respondents saying they believe strict password policies hamper productivity, there’s a good reason to ensure a balance is struck”.
