People need an incentive to use strong passwords. We gave them one

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

It’s tough to get people to behave in a particular way. Ask any parent. Or any cybersecurity expert, for that matter. For the latter, there’s no better example than the use of weak passwords—one of the most prevalent and intractable problems in cybersecurity. It is the weakest link in the defense against hackers.
