How much attention do you pay to the passwords used by your company's employees?
RomanZ 2 years ago
Do you guide employees at your company on the creation of passwords? There is a fair amount of mixed use of laptops at my office, since people are allowed to take them home and we don't have any strict policy about personal/business use beyond restricting downloads of applications. Songs, video, email are all fine for people to use on their work laptops. Most of the data on those laptops that is of the sort that we would not wish compromised is either in spreadsheets or email conversations. After reading about how weak common passwords are, I'm not so sure that I want to continue to leave it up to the individual. Do you have a hand in creation of passwords at your office, and if so do you just offer guidance or mandate use a password manager?
