The single highest cause behind ransom attacks is password breach!

Did you know that the ransom attack on the Colonial Pipeline in 2021 was caused by a simple static password breach?  This attack cost the victims millions of dollars (paid in bitcoins).

The weakest link in cybersecurity leading to ransomware attacks is not encryption, but credentials, because credentials give hackers the access they need to hold your systems hostage. Therefore, if you eliminate static authentication credentials and reuse of passwords, you eliminate this easiest point of entry to your systems.
