Office employees' risky cyber security habits

The challenges of cybersecurity awareness in work contexts

According to a study by Ivanti, many employees do not consider their actions relevant to corporate security. Younger workers have less secure habits, while regional differences point to gaps in cybersecurity training. It is essential to create a collaborative culture, avoiding problems for end users.

According to a study conducted by Ivanti, one in three employees believes that their actions do not impact the security of the organization.

Unsafe cybersecurity habits among office workers

Research also shows that office workers belonging to the Millennial and Gen Z generations are more likely to have unsafe cybersecurity habits than workers belonging to Generation X and older (those above 40 years of age).

Regional variations in cybersecurity training

The study also shows that there are regional variations in training and attitudes towards cybersecurity, with 54% of employees in China and 43% in France saying their respective organizations do not offer mandatory cybersecurity training. This number breaks down to 17% for the UK, 30% for the US and 22% for Germany.

Create a collaborative and positive safety culture

Many organizations take a top-down approach to cybersecurity training and culture. However, research shows that it is critical to develop a collaborative and positive safety culture in every organization. Under-trained employees risk weakening the organization's overall readiness, which is why organizations must design their technology infrastructure to minimize problems for end users.
