Do your workers to treat your information security controls as wishful thinking?

Flummoxed by why your people keep violating seemingly obvious personal security rules? It might be because broken processes and ineffective first-line management have conditioned your workers to treat company policies and security controls as little more than wishful thinking.

If you’re curious to learn how vulnerable your organisation is to a preventable, employee-triggered breach, go visit whatever passes for the production floor in your facility. Go where the line-level workers live and labour. Observe how they manage the requisition, storage, and cross-levelling of mission-essential office supplies. Odds are, the way your junior workers fight over pens and paper clips will tell you everything you need to know about your organisation’s dysfunctional culture.
