• Infographic: Top ten football players used as a password

    One of the common types of data breaches that we detect for our customers is leaked PII. In many cases this is in the form of passwords which have stored on unprotected Connected Storage and therefore vulnerable for compromise. 

    In the spirit of the FIFA World Cup which is currently unfolding, we decided to see which of these passwords had been inspired by football players. We then had a look at which particular players had been most influential amongst the recovered passwords. 

    We put together an infographic to break down the leaderboard. Although we are now an international company, we were originally founded in Paris in 2013. We weren’t disappointed, therefore, to find so many French players providing inspiration throughout the list. #SorryNotSorry.
