Big Data Security Risk: Bored Employees?

Coworkers Getting BoredHuman error has proven to lead to information security risks. And what’s most likely to cause human error? Bored, distracted employees!

In a recent snapshot survey, 35% of infosec professionals pointed to distraction and boredom as the main cause of human error, followed by heavy workloads (19%), excessive regulations (5%), social media (5%) and password sharing (4%).

Interestingly, those surveyed seem divided on whether people are ultimately responsible for curtailing security breaches. 57% said they think technology will ultimately replace employees as a way of avoiding human error – but 74% say it’s the responsibility of the employee to ensure their company avoids a potential data breach.
