How employees handle & dispose of documents can make or break you.
When financial forecasts or year-end results get printed, or when reports or agendas are circulated for a meeting, they are at risk of being left open to unauthorized access when they are not handled and disposed of properly.
64% of data breaches are caused by human error, either by an external vendor or by an employee.
Here are 4 common ways a company is unintentionally exposed to a significant and unnecessary risk of an information breach when confidential information is:
- Left at printing stations
- Not stored in a locked storage unit or filing cabinet
- Put in the trash or recycling bins
- Left on old hard drives that should be destroyed
Educate your employees to help identify and reduce risks.
