Half of employees cut corners whilst working from home

Half of employees are cutting corners with regards to cybersecurity while working from home – and could be putting their organisation at risk of cyber attacks or data breaches as a result. The coronavirus pandemic has forced both employers and employees to quickly adjust to remote working – and often without the watchful eyes of the IT and information security teams, workers are taking more risks online behaviour and handling data than they would at the office. Analysis by researchers at cybersecurity company Tessian reveals that 52 percent of employees believe they can get away with riskier behaviour when working from home, such as sharing confidential files via email instead of more trusted mechanisms.
