About this talk

Password reuse is one of the main reasons why passwords have been questioned as an effective measure to guarantee protection against intrusion into accounts and systems. This practice is extremely risky as it allows a malicious agent to have access to numerous accounts with a single string of characters, being able to steal confidential and valuable data, in addition to extorting a common user. This type of problem can be especially devastating for organizations, which deal with a variety of information every day and can respond to legal proceedings if they do not comply with legislation such as the LGPD, which determines how the personal data of their customers, employees, and suppliers should be handled. Check out some alarming statistics on password reuse: According to a survey carried out by Google, at least 65% of people have the habit of using the same password for different services; According to information provided by Microsoft, 44 million is the number of accounts vulnerable to hacking due to theft and compromise of passwords; 76% of millennials put their accounts at risk through password reuse, according to; The Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report points out that password reuse is the reason behind 81% of hacking attacks.
