Passwords are always a major pain point for businesses, but in some industries, their importance is emphasized more than others. In particular, government-based organizations need to be prepared to keep more secure passwords. While we understand that not all organizations are government-based, there’s something to be said about proper password practices that we can all learn something from.
If you read anything having to do with IT security, it is almost guaranteed that password policies will be discussed at some point. This method of authentication has been the standard for some time - but is it really effective enough to stand on its own? At JensenIT, we’d actually argue that it isn’t… and propose that another factor be brought into consideration.
