SHOCK STAT: A third of business owners don’t trust their staff

23.11.23 Mark Swift

 

Do you trust your employees with confidential information?

 

If you do, you’ll be surprised by this stat…

 

For a third of small and medium-sized business leaders, the answer is a resounding “no”!

 

Maybe it’s because Jim from accounting still has his password on a Post-it note under his keyboard? Or perhaps it’s because they’ve been burnt in the past?

 

Either way, it’s clear that trust isn’t enough when it comes to data security.

 

We believe the problem isn’t your employees; it’s the lack of good training and security measures.

 

So, what can you do about it?

 

Booking training for everyone is an easy first step. It empowers employees with the tools, techniques, and best practices they need to spot potential threats and take appropriate actions.

 

Think of it this way: well-trained staff pose less of a risk to the overall security of your business’s digital network. They become your first line of defence, helping to improve your company’s security, and significantly reducing the risk of a breach.

 

Next, there are your security measures. Many companies admit they don’t have sufficient technology or checks to protect confidential information.

 

This is where we come in. We can help set up your company’s system so that people can only access the data they’re supposed to.

 

But our job wouldn’t stop there. We can also ensure that your company has adequate policies relating to information sharing, gaining access to confidential data, and what happens when an employee leaves. By doing this we help you create a more secure working environment for everyone.

 

Here’s the truth: trust isn’t enough in data security. But with the right training and security measures in place, you can transform your employees from potential security risks into your greatest assets.

 

Are you ready to move from a place of fear and mistrust to one of empowerment and confidence? Get in touch.
