This is the world you live in
Death of the Password
It’s estimated that 640
Terabytes of data are
transferred over the
internet every minute!
Along with the music and movies you stream, you
also transfer pieces of sensitive information every
time you go online
Data you transfer over the
internet probably looks
something similar to this
And your most sensitive data
most likely looks like this
All of it is protected by that one password you use on

Look
familiar?
123456
the most used password in the world in 2013
There is little you, as an
average user, can do
about this
Or this…
110 million consumers’ personal information,
including credit card numbers, was stolen in
2013
But you can do your part, and it starts with your password
What can you do
Install a password manager. A long
random password is better than a short
complex password
Change your passwords often
Check credit card activity often and always
Passwords will do for now, but they will not
do in the future. They are too easily cracked
Our individual bodies will be the
keys to our data in the future
Finger print scanning technology is
starting to become more and more
common, but this is only the first step
Within your lifetime you will use your own DNA as a password
Until then, keep in mind that everything you store online is vulnerable to theft
