DataMotion Survey Reveals Security Threat: Employees

Blog News

DatamotionDataMotion announced today results from its third annual survey on corporate email and file transfer habits, revealing a significant amount of security

risk occurring within organizations.

Though almost 90 percent of respondents affirmed they have security and compliance policies in place, policies often aren’t enforced and more than 75 percent of respondents said employees at least occasionally violate policy.

“Though the survey shows us there is year-over-year growth in the number of companies putting security and compliance measures in place, the widespread security risks occurring are of great concern,” said Bob Janacek, chief technology officer at DataMotion. “Particularly at a time when a number of organizations – both large and small – have experienced serious data breaches, it is essential that companies have strong security and compliance policies in place and that they ensure their employees fully understand and diligently follow them.”
