    One of the things that stands out in Verizon's 2016 Data Breach Investigations Report is that “63% of confirmed data breaches involve using weak, default or stolen passwords.”

    The thing is, many of the breaches could have been prevented had a company been using two-factor authentication (2FA).

    Authors of the Verizon report wrote:

    We are realists here, we know that implementation of multi-factor authentication is not easy. We know that a standard username and password combo may very well be enough to protect your fantasy football league. We also know that implementation of stronger authentication mechanisms is a bar raise, not a panacea. Even with all of that, 63% of confirmed data breaches involved leveraging weak/default/stolen passwords. This statistic drives our recommendation that this is a bar worth raising.
