Of all the steps IT departments must take to keep their organizations secure, the most important may be to get users and management on board. But here are three common mistakes that prevent IT from promoting a security-conscious culture.
There’s one thing most IT employees want, and offering it could help companies retain their best tech employees, even as the IT job market heats up:
Employees using your company’s mobile devices may be leaving those gadgets open to security and privacy breaches – but a little training could go a long way to fixing their behavior.
One of the stereotypical cybercrime scenarios is an elderly person falling victim to an obvious email scam. But that’s not who most criminals target.
Work is no longer done primarily in the office – employees must be productive on the go, at home, or while they travel. But they need IT’s help to stay connected.
One side effect of a more tech-savvy generation entering the workforce: Younger employees are more likely to fix their own technology instead of calling IT.
Today’s IT departments are overworked as it is, so there’s often nothing worse than dealing with preventable support problems.
Some companies let employees use their own personal tech gadgets for work, while others have policies against it. But a recent survey shows employees are doing it no matter what.
Nothing frustrates users more than a sluggish system. To get things moving along, first check the obvious stuff, like what’s running at start-up.
Companies rely on passwords to protect sensitive info from hackers. But unfortunately, passwords often aren’t given the attention they deserve, leaving data barely more secure than it would be with no password at all.
