Podcast: ”90% of employee passwords are crackable within six hours!
Host: Chuck Harold
Website/Publication: SecurityGuyRadio 

Article Summary: 

In the SecurityGuyRadio podcast with Chuck Harold and Cedric Savarese, Founder and CEO of FormAssembly, they discuss data security and privacy topics including:

  • How FormAssembly provides businesses the tools they need to properly comply with data privacy disclosure laws, such as GDPR and CCPA
  • The statistics about the hackability of passwords, particularly in businesses
  • The ongoing battle between hackers and security teams, which is increasing due to the number of businesses starting to collect and store data online

The Highlights:

Cedric Savarese on the tools that FormAssembly provides its customers to comply with regulations:

“One of the rights that people have in Europe and in California coming up soon, is the right to know about what is being done with their personal information, so there’s some disclosure requirement. And so, we try to educate our customers, and we try to give them some tools so that when they collect that information, they can also make those disclosures at that time.”

Cedric Savarese on the ongoing struggle between hackers and security teams:

“It’s always kind of a battle between the security hackers, if you will, and then the security teams trying to stay on top. And so what’s important for businesses in general is try to not do it yourself, not try to reinvent the wheel and try to manage it yourself, and just rely on partners and vendors that do that for you.”

Cedric Savarese on the necessity of companies knowing what data they are collecting:

“One other challenge also is organizations that collect data need to also just have a good understanding of what data they have. Often, it’s not that they don’t want to secure it, but if they’re not really aware of the data that is collected across an organization, it makes it really hard for the people that are in charge of compliance and security to do that properly.”
