Lax Employee Cybersecurity Habits Pose Growing Danger to Businesses
Employees’ cybersecurity habits are bad and getting worse. New research illustrates a workforce less committed to security best practices, despite an increased focus on cybersecurity awareness in the workplace. This years’ Market Pulse Survey by SailPoint Technologies reveals that 75% of employees reuse passwords across accounts, including work and personal, compared to 56% who admitted to doing so in 2014, when the first study in the series asked the question. Just over half of survey respondents see their IT department as a source of inconvenience, leading to employees skirting IT policies. Around a third admitted they have deployed software without IT’s help, increasing risk for the organization. Worse still, 13% of staffers admitted they would not immediately notify IT if they got hacked, or thought they got hacked, and 49% would actually blame the IT department for a cyberattack if one occurred as a result of an employee being hacked.
