NEWS: Trend Micro Survey on Employee Online Behavior
If you’re involved in your company’s information security, then I think you had better read this. From prowling social networking sites at work, to overriding their Company’s installed security so they can access restricted Web sites, most employees were found to be generally imprudent and ambivalent when it comes to their company’s overall security health, according to the 2010 Trend Micro survey on corporate and small business end users.
These results might be disturbing to IT administrators and small business owners, but they’re not all that surprising, especially to those of us who work within the security industry. The key thing to remember is that there is still potential for redress through the right security technology designed specifically for your company’s needs, as well as supportive, consistent employee education that drives awareness.
