Employees 'care more about securing personal data than work data'
"UK workers take greater steps to protect personal files than work documents, a new study has revealed.
The survey of 2,000 full-time UK workers around the country carried out by Censuswide last year on behalf of Citrix, found what the virtualisation and cloud services firm described as 'an alarming disparity in employee attitudes toward work and personal data'.
Of those surveyed, 45% said they regularly use passwords to secure documents at home, but only 35% said they did so at work.
This contrast is even more stark when it comes to the destruction of physical documents. While nearly 70% of respondents said they shred and dispose of unwanted personal documents, only 40% do the same at work.”
