Employees – treasured professionals and largest risk factor
According to a survey of the Ponemon Institute the risk potential of employees depends amongst others on their age. Employees who are older than 51 years are obeying the rules, but are vulnerable to social engineering or phishing attacks. The 35 – 50 year-olds are most likely to disregard the rules. But the most hazardous group is 18-35 year olds. However, this group is also the most sought employees to counteract the shortage of skilled workers. The young people use all kinds of technologies to do their job. This includes unauthorized apps and undeclared devices. The consequent loss of control for IT security is a problem that must be solved.
First thing which must be clarified is what an employee needs to be able to work within the given rules without having to relinquish on the features which are important for his work. The respective data need to be reachable via mobile, independent of the platform and secure. The necessary strategies must fit the company and offer sufficient latitude to employees in their choice of devices. The compliance of the requirements of IT security and data protection must be considered.
