The next cybersecurity headache: Employees know the rules but just don’t care

Employees are still ignoring cybersecurity best practice despite being more aware of the risks. Cybersecurity has shot to the top of many IT leaders' priorities over the past few months as remote working became the de facto way of doing business.

Security firm Trend Micro surveyed more than 13,000 remote workers across 27 countries for its latest Head in the Clouds survey, which sought to understand individuals' attitudes towards risk in terms of cybersecurity.

Growth, Freedom And The Power To Choose

“Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” – Viktor FrankeThings come at us every day, all day, without exception. We’re stimulated by, presented with challenges and provided the opportunities to respond to these situations and experiences – also without exception.

Inherent in this power of choice is the pathway to growth and freedom.What often stops us from making certain choices is fear. Yet everyone experiences fear a...

As a result, the addiction can become even more entrenched and tougher to overcome. In some cases, the outcome is tragedy.The Downside of the Spotligh...

Then we’ve got the in-laws, extra shopping, cleaning and cooking, etc. Not to mention all the work and neighborhood holiday parties where certain people might have an extra eggnog and get a little “friendly” in ways that trigger our addiction. It’s a lot to deal with, and if we’re not diligent about our recovery and more general forms of self-care, the risk of relapse increases exponentially.Admittedly, even for sex a...
