What's employee negligence?

Employee negligence happens when an employee doesn't take proper care, for example opening emails that contain phishing attacks, using virus-infected USBs or having weak passwords that invite cyber criminals into your business. 

How can it affect your business?

  • Hurt your businesses brand or reputation
  • Interrupt business as usual while the issue is being sorted
  • Your customers' data could become compromised
  • Your business critical information could be compromised or deleted
