In the wake of high-profile data breaches, involving PayID, TGI Fridays, Sephora and NAB, one-in-three Australian workers who admit to having enabled data breaches are still unwilling to change their already compromised passwords, a new study reveals.
Over half of surveyed workers have compromised personal and financial data by clicking on links from unknown senders and these employees clicked on risky links multiple times! While 90% of employees consider themselves able to distinguish real emails from their phishing, 60% will click on links from unknown senders anyway.
Apart from the obvious financial risks, poor cyber security can also lead to larger reputational issues with suppliers and customers, among others. Office culture presents a large issue when it comes to maintaining cyber health.
