A recent survey has found that employees do not understand the value of business data and rate the security of their own personal data as more important.
From the 1000 UK employees questioned by One Poll, just 7% said that they considered business data to be more important than their own personal data and 43 percent somewhat or completely agreed they have “no idea of the value of business data”.
When questioned about business data security, only 13% of respondents knew what measures were in place at their organisation, with almost a quarter (23%) feeling like more could be done. Just 11% felt that work emails were more secure than personal emails, indicating further lack of confidence in business data security.
The survey highlights the need for companies to educate employees about protecting their own data and address concerns surrounding business security.
