The Hybrid Workplace at Risk: Brits Are More Concerned about Internet Security than Ever Before, Yet Nearly Half are Unaware of Mobile Phishing Threats

Block Quote
In the new world of the hybrid workplace, we see very mixed reactions to employer monitoring and tracking. This often includes both monitoring on corporate and personal devices. Corporations therefore need to be very transparent and consistent in their communications with the workforce, to avoid a culture of reluctance and mistrust. More than a third of consumers do not see themselves as being primarily responsible for their own digital security – which highlights how many threat actors continue to be successful. A change in cybersecurity culture can mitigate a lot of risk for organisations.
