20 Apr Users Overshare Sensitive Enterprise Data
When it comes to keeping confidential data locked down, it turns out that even employees trained in cybersecurity best practices still don’t always know how to protect sensitive information, according to the Dell End-User Security Survey 2017 released today.
While employees don’t want their companies to fall victim to a security breach, they also prefer to avoid security policies that limit their workplace productivity and daily activities, the survey found.
Two out of three employees in the survey say they were required to undergo cybersecurity training to guard sensitive data. But of this group, 18% still engaged in unsafe data security practices because they didn’t realize their actions were risky, while 24% didn’t care because they felt it stood in the way of completing a task.
