All too often employees create weak passwords to login to work systems, as well as to access personal email and applications via the Internet while at work. The risks are great: hackers can quickly expose these weak passwords and gain access to corporate data via malware and related attacks.

In this webinar you will learn about:

  • Perspectives on the current state of password security and what’s going wrong
  • Specific threats and attacks that result from weak passwords
  • Ways to protect your organization through education and technology
  • Alternatives to traditional passwords
