Video: Let's Talk About Passwords

In conjunction with National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, our Trustwave team recently hit the streets of Chicago to learn what employees really know about security.

Continuing today through Thursday, we will post a daily video to the Trustwave Blog and on our YouTube channel. In our fourth video, we asked random workers: Which password do you use most often? One would hope that if a stranger asked one of your employees for their password, they would not give it away. Unfortunately, as we discovered, that's not always the case.

After you watch, we want to hear from you. Share the videos over social media and email, comment on them, and, better yet, tell us the most harrowing - or proudest - tale of employee security actions you've witnessed as an IT pro. Lost laptops at airports? Sensitive emails sent to personal accounts? Passwords written on Post-it notes? Or perhaps a worker who clicked out of that phishing scam? Tweet at us @Trustwave and be sure to use the hashtag #securitysmarts.

Do you want to commiserate with other practitioners. Be sure to engage in the comment threads on our LinkedIn or Facebook pages - and interact with your peers!
