Who Is the Biggest Risk To Your Company’s Security?

When protecting against a data breach, ever wonder who the biggest risk to your company’s security may be? Well, according to an information security risk survey, believe it or not, it’s Senior Management. When asked, many admitted that they email or upload secure documents to servers or clouds and some even take information with them when they leave companies. Many have even admitted to sending the wrong information along to personal emails.
So what does this mean for companies? If your information ends up in the wrong hands, depending on the sensitivity of the information, results could be catastrophic. On the bright side, employees that reported to not sending sensitive information electronically said they did not because it was against company policy. Annual review of company policy is always good practice.
