The weak link of the company: unfaithful employees

dipendinfedeliIt’s one of the greatest dangers in companies both big and small. Loyal, disciplined and educated employees, but that in front of a good sum of money or a prestigious position can sell information and confidential data.

According to a recent research, behind the office desk, 3 of 5 they shop online or go to the website of their bank, while half “attended” social networks. A risky behavior, so businesses become vulnerable for what concerns the safety online. The “perpetrators” would be the most loyal employees, liabilities and “cynical bored”, the real weak link in the chain of IT security.

640 of 1000 interviewees are convinced that it’s the company to have “vaccinated” them as bugs and by other web hazards. One in three even thinks that security is equivalent to less innovation. The result? Many surfers without protection, and a company boat at risk.
But it would be enough to implement control systems for computers that invisibly protect companies from undercover criminals . Because they are often the same companies to protect employees from any risk, but not the opposite.
