1 in 5 Employees Share Their Work Passwords with Coworkers

The Infinite Brief
19% of employees of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) share their passwords with coworkers or assistants, according to a recent survey by IT consultancy Switchfast.

In addition, those shared passwords are often weak – easily guessed, brute-forced, and/or possibly already compromised from an older data breach.

76% of the SMB leaders say they haven’t enabled multi-factor authentication, compared to 69% of SMB employees.

About half of the SMB C-level leaders (51%) are “convinced” their business is not a target for cybercriminals, while only 35% of their employees are.
