New Threats and Same Bad Habits Pose Serious Risk to Your Organisation.
Last year, new revelations and regulations underscored how critical data protection has become to all levels within any organisation. Over the last two years, we have seen the devastating WannaCry attack over 200,000 computers in 150 countries, and an attack on the municipal government of Atlanta nearly grounded the city to a halt.
Now, the General Data Protection Regulation is fully in effect, with a package of financial penalties for organisations who do not comply. While organisations can invest in more robust data protection and security measures, it is their employees who can cause a potential disaster for their organisation.
Our research into large and medium public and private sector organisations in Ireland reveals that poor, inconsistent security policies, processes or procedures, create bad habits amongst employees, which could compromise critical data and cause disruption with serious consequences.
