Passwords aren't the problem - we are

A billion stolen passwords or not, we can all benefit from exercising common sense when it comes to online security

Majority of Kiwis suffer cyber security breach

Posted by vosa on August 7, 2014

More than 80 per cent of Kiwis who use the internet have experienced a cyber security breach, but only 39 per cent have then changed their online behaviour, new research shows.

The study results were released today to coincide with the start of Connect Smart Week, formerly Cyber Security Week, aimed at raising awareness of cyber security.

The research, commissioned by the National Cyber Policy Office (NCPO), found 35 per cent of online Kiwis hardly ever change their passwords, and 34 per cent don't have passwords on their smartphones, despite the high risk of devices being misplaced or stolen.

Will that photo of me with two cigarettes stuffed up my nose still be the top image?

But what happens if we stumble across something we consider to be irrelevant or outdated, or even something that might infringe on our privacy?
