Everyone within business know that employees can pose a security risk. But should they be punished for opening an infected attachment or making a bad click?
Security software and procedures can provide some protection from the outside world and the threats that are all too common on the internet.
What do you do however when a user inadvertently opens an infected email attachment from a private gmail account?
No simple answer can be given but studies have shown education and buy in from teams can reduce the number of instances of accidental damage to company systems.
Although you may not think it is common around 16% of staff will open an email that contains either a phishing link or malware. Put it another way 16 out of 100 staff may compromise your systems at anytime…. this is not just smaller companies but multi nationals who have some of the largest IT budgets around.
