The Harm in Password Reuse

The Harm in Password Reuse



At Simeio, our primary focus is helping organizations secure their most valuable digital assets with state-of-the-art Identity and Access Management (IAM) policies, technologies and professionals with highly specialized skills and expertise.

Doing business in today's interconnected world requires giving employees, partners, suppliers and customers access to sensitive resources on your network. Every one of these user accounts is a point of vulnerability that no firewall can address – that's the job of IAM.

Password reuse is when someone uses the same credentials they use to access your network to access services outside of your organization – services such as dating or gaming sites, social media sites, etc. If a malicious actor compromises one of these systems where passwords are poorly encrypted or stored in the open, they now have access to your network, too.
