It’s no secret that our phones and digital devices keep us entertained for hours–whether at work or at home. Many of us check our work email from home computers, or use work devices for browsing social media. But as more of our personal devices and identities play a role in our professional lives, it’s becoming even more important to employees that companies are able to ensure the safety and security of their devices and data. According to a recent CareerBuilder survey on workplace security, nearly 1 in 3 (30 percent) of employees are concerned their workplace is vulnerable to digital hackers. And with the growing frequency of major companies reporting data hacks and stolen personal information, it’s crucial that organizations reinforce their digital security strategies.
What This Means for You
Highlighting your own company’s digital security plans, as well as looking to what other organizations are doing, can give your employees in IT and across the company or interview table a strong sense of security and allow them to do their jobs well. Also making your security strategy more visible to employees and training them on what is acceptable and safe, and what poses a threat, will create a more educated and well-protected work environment for your workers in the office and online.
