How to REALLY convince a client that his passwords need to be far more complicated?
Posted 18.10.2017 @ 7.25AM
So I have a client I'm doing a bit of work for, and accessing a few different online accounts of their's, and most of them use not only the same password, but the password itself is simply the first name of a relative, plus the last two digits of their birth year, 6 characters in total. Eek!!
I've tried explaining a few times that this basically means they have only not had their accounts hacked due to no one trying, and that it will be a matter of "when" not "if"... but doesn't seem to be hitting home quite enough for them to change.
Anything else anyone could suggest to hit home with them a little harder? Would LOVE for them to make a change before anything does happen in the future...
