How to Minimize Your Exposure to Employee Mistakes

How to Minimize Your Exposure to Employee Mistakes

The average American worker makes 118 mistakes per year on average. A mistake could range anywhere from tardiness to downloading a virus on their company computer. Everyone knows that you should fire the workers that are actively working against your company. They are clearly malevolent and have the sole intent of harming your organization. But what do you do about workers that are generally trying their best, but still end up hurting the company? People will make mistakes all the time and it can be costly but they didn’t actually intend to hurt the company. This problem can be mitigated in many different ways, but here are the most common.

Training

Most employees will require basic training to bring them on board to the company. But few companies continue to train their employees about issues such as cybersecurity past the basic level. This results in employees not knowing how to spot phishing attacks or how to identify malicious links. More in depth cybersecurity training seems expensive but it really does not have to be. All it takes is one person within the organization that understands these issues, or is willing to do some extra research to put together a presentation for the company. If this person does not exist within your company, then you may be in trouble. Security is becoming a much more important issue than before with the rise of legislation concerning data privacy and leaks.

Company training for doing business securely can proactively prevent data breaches.

Awareness

Even after a security presentation, most employees will simply forget about it, if they were even paying attention at all. Company culture must emphasize cybersecurity or else employees simply will not care. A couple posters around the office saying not to click on suspicious links is simply not enough. This goes hand in hand with training. Employees should be able to actively recognize the threats they face in today’s environment and act accordingly.

Just knowing about something is the first step.

Data Protection

If your proactive measures fail, you should have a failsafe to limit your exposure to mistakes. You probably have some sort of cybersecurity implemented within your company, an antivirus at the bare minimum. But that alone, or even most combinations of security services does not do the best job at protecting you. Solutions today employ an opt-in method to security, meaning that users have to decide which data to protect. However, given the large number of mistakes made by employees, this method is not sound. Data protection must minimize the risk of a leak. That’s why we created the first opt-out data protection solution.

SecureCircle protects your data regardless of location including on-premise file servers, edge devices like phones and laptops, as well as public and private cloud storage. Over the past year, we’ve heard overwhelmingly positive feedback from compliance officers and auditors because as a byproduct of data protection that works everywhere, SecureCircle is also able to track files at all times. Protection and visibility of your company’s sensitive data. Visit our website to learn more about what we do.
