Password Management Survey
In November of 2007 Siber Systems and eMedia conducted a survey in which 600 IT professionals were asked a series of questions about password security, password convenience, as well as current challenges related to password management in their respective organizations. The questions ranged from "What are your primary password management concerns?" to "What percentage of calls to your IT staff consist of password-oriented requests?"
Professionals of all levels and disciplines were represented across many different industries. Executives with titles of Chairman, CEO, President, Principal, Owner, or Vice president accounted for 12% of all respondents. Almost 25% held titles of CIO, CTO, Director, or Security officer. Close to 30% of respondents were either a Manager, Senior System Administrator, or System Administrator. Engineers, Analysts, Architects, and Developers made up 22%. The remaining 11% held titles of Consultant, Coordinator, Professor, Scientist, Dean, or CFO.
