What If My Employees are my Biggest Security Threat?

Employees often use their employers’ networks and computers for personal use on company time. While the occasional glance at Facebook or paying a household bill is deemed okay, what about the times when they put your company at risk?

Malicious content can be found just about anywhere online which opens your network up to vulnerabilities if your employees are visiting sites that are not deemed safe or appropriate by your organization. Downloading videos, streaming content, complying with email requests and online gaming can all lead to potential data and monetary loss for your company. Those videos may be hiding malware that can hold your data ransom forcing your business to shut down temporarily or in some cases, permanently. The email request may be a spoofed address attempting to take advantage of your unsuspecting employee and make a few, quick bucks. All of these are potential scenarios we see every day that can wreak havoc on a business.
