The Password Paradox

The Password Paradox
  • Are people predisposed to creating weak passwords due to their comfort level with simple, easy to remember names and dates?
  • Is the fear of forgetting a password a stronger motivator than the fear of being hacked?
  • Is it simply a case of user apathy that they either don't care or don't see themselves as being at risk?
  • Or, does it run deeper than that?
