Despite an increased focus on cybersecurity awareness in the workplace, employees’ poor cybersecurity habits are getting worse, compounded by the speed and complexity of the digital transformation.
Of the 1,600 global employees Vanson Bourne surveyed, 75% of respondents admitted to reusing passwords across accounts, including work and personal.
Organizations are at varying stages of the digital transformation, and that evolution has presented an increasingly complex IT environment to manage securely. Yet the survey findings points to a workforce who are less committed to security best practices. This has not only introduced more risk, but also a sense of frustration between the IT team trying to secure and enable the business and users who want to work more efficiently.
