Your boss could be the biggest cyber-threat in the office
New research from OneLogin has found that there may be an unexpected source for the malware infecting corporate devices: bosses.
The company’s “Covid-19 State of Remote Work Survey 2.0,” which collected data from 2000 US and UK remote workers, claims that senior management personnel often showed the most casual attitude to cybersecurity.
According to OneLogin, senior managers were more than twice as likely to share a work device with an individual outside their organization than their junior counterparts, while 19% of senior managers shared passwords with someone in their family compared to just 7% of junior staff. Similarly, 30% of senior employees reported working from public Wi-Fi networks compared to only 15% of junior staffers.
