Some Employees Won’t Stop Using Apps That Could Be A Security Risk

Written by Adam Foster

Hey, it’s Adam with your latest tech update.

How much does your team care about good cyber security in your business?

Your people probably DO care. But many employees don’t.

A recent survey found a massive 92% of staff want full control over the apps they use for work.

And half still use software that’s been banned by their IT department.

The problem escalated in the pandemic, when employees needed to get the job done any way they could. Two years later, they still want the same control.

It puts business owners in a tricky position.

Blocking apps shows a lack of trust. But ignoring it could lead to a huge data breach or another security problem.

We think the answer is talking to your people and finding applications that keep everyone happy.

We’ve helped lots of business owners do this – get in touch if you want some help.

That’s your tech update, more next week
