A third of business owners don’t trust their employees

Do you have faith in your employees to keep sensitive information safe?


Well, here's an eye-opening fact: One out of every three leaders in small and medium-sized businesses doesn't trust their employees with confidential data!


Why is that? It could be because someone like Jim in the accounting department still stores his password on a sticky note under his keyboard. Or maybe it's because they've had bad experiences in the past.


In any case, it's clear that just trusting your employees isn't sufficient when it comes to protecting data.


We believe the problem isn't necessarily your employees; it's the lack of proper training and security measures.


So, what can you do about it?


One easy step is to provide training for everyone. This training will equip your employees with the knowledge and skills to recognize potential threats and take the right actions.


Think of it like this: well-trained staff are less likely to pose a risk to your company's digital security. They become your first line of defense, which helps enhance your company's security and dramatically reduces the chances of a data breach.


Then there are your security measures. Many companies admit they don't have enough technology or safeguards to protect sensitive information.


That's where we can assist you. We can help set up your company's system so only authorized individuals can access specific data.


But our support doesn't end there. We can also ensure your company has proper policies for sharing information, gaining access to confidential data, and handling situations when an employee leaves. This helps create a more secure work environment for everyone.


Here's the bottom line: Trust alone isn't sufficient when it comes to data security.

However, with the proper training and security measures, you can turn your employees from potential security risks into your most valuable assets.
