Only 55% of users would change password if they were hacked

A recent study found that 91% of people know using the same password for multiple accounts is wrong but 59% do it anyway.

According to the study, 5 million records are breached daily, yet few people proactively change their passwords or create passwords that would be difficult for hackers to break. The survey reminds readers that, on average, it takes organizations 66 days to contain a breach and 161 days just to identify that one has even occurred.
