Passwords. The bane of modern existence. To celebrate this nuisance, the holiday gods have given us World Password Day, where thousands of people come together online and pledge to improve their password habits. How many of those pledges do you think stick? According to the 2017 Verizon Data Breach Investigation Report, not many. A little over 50 percent of all breaches in the last year leveraged either stolen or weak passwords.
Coincidentally, today is also Star Wars Day (May the 4th Be with You). And while we all wouldn’t mind having a lovable droid guard our passwords as loyally as R2D2 guarded the blueprints for the Death Star, the reality is we’ve got to do the guarding ourselves. And that has become burdensome enough to send Yoda himself over to the Dark Side.
