Working in a highly compliant, data-protective and highly regulated environment as so many of our lovely clients do, you may be interested in the following article from a recent blog in the brilliant Huffington Post where they cite the most popular (and worst) password combinations we users adopt in our workplace which, from a security perspective, might be worth a minute or two of your attention….

Published annually by SplashData, the list of the “Top 25 Most Popular & Worst Password Combinations of 2015” has now been unveiled! Surprisingly, there’s NO CHANGE in the number 1 spot in 2015 from the top spot in 2014.
