This is an ongoing problem year after year, even with all the credentials-related cyber crime that leads our news headlines. Awareness is not hampering habit. Fast, easy access and speed in getting things done takes precedence over following standard security protocol. People simply just do not practice good password hygiene and this is problematic for the Enterprises and organizations that employ them.  

Companies need to take proactive measures to monitor the underground communities where credentials and IP are sold, traded and dumped. IdTheft companies can help people monitor their credentials and PII to protect against identity theft, account takeover and other crimes.
