A study of 1,200 corporate employees in the UK revealed that only a direct and personal experience of cybercrime will trigger a change in attitude and online habits. The following statistics are telling:
55% – Number of employees who actively follow online security threats, malware, viruses, and hackers
77% – Number of employees who are entirely unconcerned about workplace online security
19% – Number of employees who reuse the same username and password for every personal and business application
75% – Number of employees who write down their passwords for ‘safekeeping’
Frightening? Yes. Shocking? Unfortunately not.
