Lunchtime Talk - P@ssw0rd (in)s3curity!

  • 18th February 2020

  • Lunch & Learn

  • 12:30 PM-1:30 PM

At, our cyber security specialists are passionate about identifying and helping reduce the attack surfaces of our clients, and one area we're frequently asked about (and where we often identify issues) is password security.

This session will start with a high-level look at how passwords are stored, followed by a review of some past data breaches showing how customer passwords were insecurely maintained. We will then look at how many possibilities there are to guess a given password and the speeds at which they can be attacked, showing how some platforms are more vulnerable than others.

Recent password guidance from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will also be addressed and a live demo showing how an attacker can break passwords will be shown using data from a real life data breach.
