Here at Chillblast we were discussing password protection, and one of our quality controllers mentioned how chocolate can play a vital part in data security. Once a year, a survey has been conducted by the data security consultants Infosecurity Europe, usually by stopping members of the public just outside Liverpool Street Station in the City of London. The survey always followed the same pattern, in which members of the public were approached by market researchers and offered a chocolate bar in exchange for answering a few questions. And one of those questions was the identity of their computer passwords.
In the latest round, a hefty forty five per cent of women happily gave away their passwords, compared to only a meagre ten per cent of men, and this tells us one very important thing. Women are much smarter than men, because they realise that if they lie to some idiot in the street and make up any old password, they get free chocolate!
