Despite raised awareness, worker cyber security practices aren't improving

November 13, 2018 / Sead Fadilpasic

Even though there has lately been a lot of talk about cybersecurity awareness amongst employees, their habits aren’t getting any better. As a matter of fact, SailPoint Technologies’ new report says they are actually getting worse. The enterprise identity governance company issued a report based on a poll of 1,600 employees worldwide. In the report, it was stated that three in four respondents (75 per cent) still use identical passwords across different accounts, which includes both business and private accounts. Four years ago, just above half (56 per cent) had this practice. Besides the obvious risk that this type of behaviour represents for organisations, it also has a side-effect: IT experts are getting increasingly frustrated trying to secure and enable businesses to be more efficient.
