Study shows UK workers fail to understand data value, putting firms at risk

From ComputerWeekly.com

"Only 7% of UK employees rate their business data higher than their personal information, a survey has revealed.

More than half of the 1,000 UK employees polled by independent research firm OnePoll said they value their own data more than their work data – while 43% said they 'somewhat' or 'completely' agree that they have no idea of the value of business data.

The study – commissioned by Fujitsu – found UK employees are cautious and many choose not to mix personal data and work data.

Nearly a third of respondents said they worry more about losing their personal data than their business data, with 89% admitting that they trust the security of personal emails over work ones.

Fujitsu said that, while 58% of respondents understand the risks around identity theft, the study suggests more needs to be done – from both businesses and employees.”
