Description

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, anti-virus 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.

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, anti-virus 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. Who’s not worried? Almost two-thirds of U.S. employees never or rarely worry about confidential information remaining secure. Why you should be: 51 % vs. 68 55 % of women 76 % 57 % of men % of households earning $35k–$49.9k of workers copy, scan or print confidential work of households earning $75k+ 78 % 70 % 54 % of westerners of workers are not prompted to enter a password of northeasterners Who’s ignoring the rules? 1 in 10 rarely or never follow the policy “I didn’t know there was a policy.” 2 in 10 are not aware a policy even exists vs. 24% of women 30 % 18- to 34-year-olds are nearly twice as likely to indicate this than any other age group Security policy awareness appears to improve with household income. of those with a high school degree or less 8% of men 18 % of those with some college education or more 36% % unaware 87% of employees work at a company that has an IT security policy—however: 29% 21% 13% $35k or less $35k– $49.9k $50k– $74.9k $75k+ What can you do? With the right balance of technology, people and process, you can protect sensitive data wherever it resides. 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 dayto-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. For more about how Xerox can help, visit xerox.com/security.
