Cloud Infographic: Personal Data Security

Recently, Dashlane released a report that analyzed the password policies of the top 100 e-commerce sites.

The results of this report are staggering. They demonstrate that the majority of the top e-commerce sites fail to comply with the recommended password security principles. In their infographic titled “The Illusion of Personal Data Security in E-commerce”, they provide groundbreaking information to support their stance.

The main findings of their report state that 55% of the top 100 e-commerce sites still accept weak passwords such as “123456” and “password”. Furthermore, 93% of the sites do not offer on-screen password assessments that would tell users the real-time strength level of their passwords. Half of the companies do not block entry after the users provide 10 consecutive incorrect login attempts. As a result, this opens the way for automated password cracking. Lastly, the report states that only 38% of the top e-commerce sites require passwords with at least 1 letter and 1 number.

To summarize the findings of the report, 64% of the top e-commerce sites have highly questionable passwords policies.
