Do you trust your staff members with sensitive information? If you do, you’ll be surprised to know that a shocking third of business owners don’t trust employees.
Maybe because Jim from accounting still keeps his password hidden under his keyboard on a Post-it note? Or is it possible that they’ve already been burned?
In any case, it is evident that trust alone is insufficient for data security.
We think the issue lies with inadequate security and training procedures rather than your staff members.
What then can you do to address it?
Scheduling training for all employees is an easy first step. It equips staff members with the tools, strategies, and best practices required to identify any risks and take appropriate action.
Consider it this way: employees with proper training are less likely to jeopardize the general security of your company’s digital network. They act as your first line of defense, enhancing the security of your business and drastically lowering the possibility of a breach.
After that, you need to think about what security measures you have in place. Many businesses acknowledge that they lack the necessary technology or security measures to safeguard sensitive data.
Here’s where we get involved. We can help configure the system at your business so that users can only access the data that they are authorized to.
However, our work would not end there. We can also make sure that your business has sufficient procedures in place regarding information exchange, access to sensitive data, and employee leaves. We assist you in creating a more secure workplace for all employees by doing this.
The fact is that trust alone is not enough to secure data. But you can make your employees become your greatest assets by providing them with the proper training and security measures.
