I am not sure what Nostradamus had predicted about IT Security and IAM but from Facebook to Adobe, 2013 was a tough year for companies looking to defend against cyber-crimes. There were hundreds of known data breaches in different organizations where billions of records related to personal and financial data were stolen or spilled due to security failures.

What do 40 percent of folks aged between 18 and 48 never do unless they don't have a choice? Change their passwords. It's one of the many pieces of data uncovered by security outfit Fortinet after canvassing members of both Generation X (ages 33 to 48) and millennials (ages 18 to 32), half male and half female. The resulting poll assesses the generational differences in attitudes toward passwords, personal data security, and privacy.
