I have no doubt that we will see more password compromises in the future. Passwords are the oldest security control that we have, and they are probably the least understood. It would be nice to imagine that these breaches will result in the universal adoption of two-factor authentication technologies, or at least password vaults, but those changes are not going to happen everywhere for both economic and usability reasons. The fact is that passwords are here to stay, and it is time to get serious about modernizing the approach that corporations take to password security.
