The false sense of security

You are not safe as you may think. Even sophisticated IT security professionals, are naked on line but have a false sense of security. A simple test of their password strength against brute force attack will reveal that their passwords are so weak that it would take just under six minutes to break them.

During a cyber security awareness training, Mustapha B Mugisa of Summit Consulting Ltd, asked participants to conduct self test of their password strengths. The computer was able to hack them within just less than two seconds.
