The leading provider of zero-trust and zero-knowledge cyber security software, Keeper Security, has surveyed thousands of Brits online to discover their password security secrets. The survey unveiled that half of the people taking part had been hacked at least once previously.
The survey uncovered the shocking amount of sensitive information stolen and millions of pounds taken from digital wallets and accounts as a result of poor password protection. Revealing the average cost of a cyber attack for an individual is £295. Furthermore, when asked what they would rather do than be hacked, these were the results:
23% would rather not have access to TV for a week
22% would rather be stood up on a date
And 12% would rather have a root canal
With 49% of brits using the same password across multiple sites and apps, therefore, once a hacker cracks one password, they have access across all apps and data, causing widespread disruption. This highlights the importance of password security and protection and why cyber security software is something everyone should be using.
