Good password security: the perfect New Year’s resolution for your business and employees
by Matt Davey on
The New Year’s resolutions we stick to have a few things in common: they’re realistic, focused, and have clear benefits. That’s why improving company-wide password habits is a great resolution for 2019.
According to the most recent data from Verizon, over 70% of employees reuse passwords at work. The report also finds a staggering 81% of hacking-related breaches used stolen or weak passwords. A security breach of your own wouldn’t be a great start to the year, especially if you know it could have been avoided.
1Password Business makes improving password habits an easy resolution for you and your employees to keep, both at work and at home. You get a password solution for your entire business — complete with advanced access controls and Watchtower breach monitoring — that’s compliant to the most stringent industry standards.
When your employees are practicing good password habits at home, they are infinitely more likely to practice them at work. The beginning of the year is the perfect time to roll out a password manager out — many employees will already be in the right mindset for making changes, committing to new things, and improving their day-to-day lives.
With your 1Password Business account, every employee gets a free 1Password Families membership.
Using 1Password will quickly become second nature — and unlike most New Year’s resolutions, this one will actually save you time, even from the start.
If you’re already using 1Password Business and want to remind employees about their free family accounts, we have some great materials for you to send around:
…and if your company is anything like ours, it’s not an all email without a GIF.
