Many infosec professionals reuse passwords across multiple accounts

Lastline announced the results of a survey conducted at Infosecurity Europe 2018, which suggests that 45 percent of infosec professionals reuse passwords across multiple user accounts – a basic piece of online hygiene that the infosec community has been attempting to educate the general public about for the best part of a decade.

The research also suggested that 20 percent of security professionals surveyed had used unprotected public WiFi in the past, and 47 percent would be cautious about buying the latest gadgets due to security concerns.
