Hikvision on Multi-Factor Authentication to Address Security Concerns
A recent study found that 51 percent of people reuse “an average of five passwords across their business and personal accounts,” according to an article in BetaNews.com.
The BetaNews.com article covered results from Yubico’s 2019 State of Password and Authentication Security Behaviors report.

Sixty-three percent of survey respondents expressed greater concerns about the security and privacy of their personal data than two years before.
