In the world of IT…Passwords Matter.
They keep our computers, data, and random trivialities secure. Each employee is provided their own username…they set the password…security at its most basic, right?
Well…in theory it works in that manner. Unless….
You have a group of people (whole department) who share their username/password with each other. They have it written down so each person can access their computer/email. The reasons?
“Well, we can’t do their work if they’re out sick or on vacation without. Now can we?”
“They need to be able to work my email. I hate reading them.” – This is the Manager of the departments statement
Part of me is dumbfounded. The other part of me remembers two of these users are in our hall of Infamous Clickers for failing in our Phishing Campaigns.
I am at a complete loss….
