Employee Behavior Versus Data Security

The Code42 2018 Data Exposure Report

Companies spend billions on data security. Yet security policies and perimeters are no match for employee behavior—particularly among the C-suite.

Check out Code42’s latest research on data security. You’ll learn the startling truth about how data security vulnerabilities are created by employee work habits, IT’s lack of visibility to endpoints and companies’ standard responses to cybercrime:

  • 78% of CEOs believe that IP is the most precious asset in the enterprise, yet 72% have taken IP from a past employer.
  • 86% of security and IT leaders say saving files outside company storage creates serious risk and 71% say losing all endpoint-only data would disrupt or destroy business.
  • 61% of CISOs say their company has been breached in the last 18 months, and 64% believe they’ll have a public breach in the next year.

This report provides insight from nearly 1,700 security, IT and business leaders from the U.S., U.K. and Germany on their attitudes and approaches to data security.
