Are you using Teams to share sensitive data?April 20, 2023
Many of us rely on Microsoft Teams as our go-to platform for communication and collaboration with our colleagues. It provides a convenient way to share information quickly and efficiently.
However, recent research has uncovered a concerning trend - almost half of employees admit to frequently sharing confidential and sensitive files on Teams.
Even more alarming, over half of employees have shared business-critical information, and nearly half have sent messages to the wrong recipients.
This becomes a critical issue when employees use unsecured personal devices to share files on Teams. These devices’ lack of security measures can result in significant security breaches and data leaks.
Therefore, it’s crucial to ensure that everyone in the organization understands the risks of sharing data on personal devices and takes necessary precautions to keep sensitive information safe.
One effective measure is to provide regular cybersecurity awareness training for all employees. This can be a fun and engaging way to educate employees on best practices for data security and help them understand the potential consequences of their actions.
