- Originally Published:
- Apr 2014
Employee passwords are the first line of defense in securing the organization from inappropriate or malicious access to data and services. In many cases compromised user accounts have been turned into “stepping stones” for administrator-level penetration by unauthorized individuals, resulting in catastrophic, well-publicized data breaches.
Regardless of whether accounts are used for testing, workstation setups, day-to-day use or superuser/root privileges, establishing and maintaining a strong password management policy is the foundation of a secure organization.
