Think you’re secure?
Why you may be surprised.
With more than 50,000 security threats emerging each day, IT managers like you have a challenging job. Even with carefully crafted policies, the biggest threat may come from inside your organization. Firewalls, antivirus software, rules and regulations can only do so much. The final barrier is employee behavior and, when you’re waging the war against laid-back attitudes, culprits can be everywhere. Over half of U.S. employees who print, scan or copy confidential information never, or rarely, worry that those items will remain secure. Make your IT security policy more than a written document. Communicate the ‘how’ and the ‘why’ regularly and require your policy to be part of day-to-day procedures through supporting technology.
Nothing does more than a proactive approach to policy awareness and adherence. When you think you’ve kicked worry to the wayside, think again. The threats are all around and always changing.
And security is everyone’s responsibility.
