Super Bowl Security Centre Wi-Fi password aired by CBS

Super-Bowl-ScreenThe Super Bowl security centre could use a few tips on how to securely store and share their passwords. And we don’t mean projecting it on a wall for all to see and having it broadcast to millions of viewers. We’ll admit that it’s a fairly quick way to give the details to lots of people but it’s not great when you don’t want to give millions people access to your Wi-Fi.

The security gaffe was all thanks to CBS, who were running a televised segment on the top class security of the Super Bowl. The segment showed dramatic footage of the security team standing in front of large screens with a hawk eye view of the stadium, but in the corner the Wi-Fi Access codes can clearly be seen. We can only hope that the team quickly changed the credentials after news of the blunder broke.

A password management solution such as my1login makes it easy to securely share specific passwords with employees and teams. The service also provides an audit trail of who has access to what and when, and makes it easy to cease employees when access is no longer required.
