Don't Share Passwords Between Personal and Work Accounts

It is generally a very bad idea to use the same password for different accounts.However, it would be naive for an administrator to think that the typical employee would use a different password for every system that requires one.

This is especially true when it comes to proper security practices for staffers. Passwords are typically the first line of defense against unauthorized access, and Paul highlights some pointers about password management that all employees should know about.
