Information Security 2012 (Tietoturvaraportti 2012) report by KPMG lists top-10 threats of the corporate information security. The first item on the list and also the most common deficiency on the Corporations Information Security is Inadequate Password Policies. According to the observations of the study, in typical case the end-user chooses the most simple password allowed by the system. The trend was the same also with the more advanced end-user accounts, such as administrators of the system.
The whole report can be found here (in Finnish).
The report notes that the threat can be easily eliminated by requiring strong enough passwords, and also to chance them on a regular basis. This, of course, results as monitoring and controlling the process, and also for the end-users to put more emphasis on managing their passwords.
