Forget about blaming hackers and competitors for a security breach of your businesses’ information. According to a recent ComputerWeekly article, an organization’s own employees are often times the biggest threat to the security of your information

“The majority of major data breaches that have occurred over the past 18 months can be directly attributed to employee behavior, an inability to follow policies and procedures that has had catastrophic results; millions of personal records being compromised, a plethora of government investigations, heavy fines and sanctions, reputational damage and the media baying for blood.”
