We are the weakest link…

When it comes to digital security, we are the weakest link.

In the world of technology, human error can be the difference between success and catastrophe. Nowhere is this truer than in the workplace, where humans can be the biggest threat to your IT system.

An infographic designed by IT support solutions company, TSG, reveals that humans are responsible for all manner of IT security problems in the workplace, from stealing company data to accidentally installing viruses.

In 2013 alone, 50% of employees who left or lost their jobs kept corporate data, with 40% planning on using it in their next job. Aside from ex-employees, there are hundreds of criminal organisations exploiting cyber security flaws to steal data and funds. In fact, fraud accounts for £670 million of losses a year.

It is clear that digital security is now more important than ever. You need to protect your systems, portable devices, networks and even cloud-hosted data from attack. Discover the leading modes of cyber security by viewing the infographic below and visiting TSG’s blog.
