Is your workplace a safe space for data?
The modern office workplace is arguably the environment where your business data is at most risk. Why? Because it’s the intersection of people and information and much of that interaction is usually unmonitored and unregulated.
Whether by accident or malice, data security threats are a real challenge for the modern business. At Canon, our business solutions consultants have hundreds of conversations with office managers and technology experts annually across Europe and we know that most workplaces are not safe environments for data.
The ubiquity of sensitive and confidential information associated with modern working means that the threat of data breaches and cyber-hacks is always there whether you work in finance, HR or administration. But when it comes to the office in which we work, most of us trust that our environments are safe spaces for sensitive information. We presume window locks work and people with an ID Card have been formally issued one, that reception teams are always vigilant and that all the CCTV cameras pointing out towards the car parks and corridors will be enough to keep the bad people out.
