Password Exposure Test

Have you ever wondered just how vulnerable your systems are because of the bad habits of a few end users? Moreover, have you ever desired a tool that can peer deep into your user base and pinpoint exactly who is putting your systems at risk? Now you can.

The good folks at KnowBe4 have developed a powerful complimentary tool capable of scanning and identifying users that have poor information security tendencies such as using the same passwords over and over that have already been comprised or stored on the Dark Web, as well as using weak passwords that can be easily cracked.

The test only takes minutes to run providing you with a treasure trove of data from which to launch a crackdown on sloppy or careless users. Here’s the link to the app:
