Confidential information – in general
The video clip above is a 30 second excerpt from a cartoon video of 1:30 minute duration.
All employees must be particularly aware and focused when handling confidential data and information. This is the one of two short videos about how we avoid leaking confidential information. See the other video, which is about more specific issues with e-mails
A legal requirement
It is a legal requirement that companies and organisations must be very careful with the way they handle confidential data and information. As a consequence, employees are obligated to be extremely aware and focused on this issue.
With the new EU Personal Data Regulation, these requirement are now being even further tightened in Europe and large fines can be imposed on companies that fail to manage personal and confidential data properly.
Weakest link in security chain
Your organisation may have invested heavily in security tools to keep its data safe behind encrypted fire-walls, but if the employees in the organisation are as unaware as people are in general about the threats from IT criminals, then the most severe and costly security crisis your organisation has ever faced could happen because of a simple click by an employee.
Focus on training
Skills and confidence helps make secure decisions.
“Don’t impose blanket bans on employees – in order to work effectively they do require timely access to data. Blocking access to information may do more harm than good, and is not the solution to prevent future confidential customer information leakage. Instead, focus on training employees and giving them the skills and confidence they need to make secure decisions,” suggests computer scientist Tony Abou-Assaleh from TitanFile.
