Recently I came across a white paper from HP's Wolf Security group. Remember that they sell "endpoint security."
According to our HP Wolf Security Blurred Lines and Blindspots report, 23% of office workers globally expect to predominantly work from home post-pandemic, with an additional 16% expecting to split their time equally between home and the office. This will have far-reaching consequences for organizations across all economies.
This change is here to stay. That's really scary from a security perspective.
Here is a summary of their findings.
OFFICE WORKER REBELLIONS
- 39% of office workers surveyed aged 18-24 were unsure of the existing data security policies in place at their work
- 36% of office workers surveyed had been given training on how to protect their home network
- 54% of office workers surveyed aged 18-24 were more worried about deadlines than exposing the business to a data breach
- 48% of office workers surveyed aged 18-24 thought security policies are a hindrance
- 37% of office workers surveyed said security policies and technologies are too restrictive
- 48% of office workers surveyed said security measures result in a lot of wasted time
- 31% of office workers surveyed aged 18-24 had tried to circumvent security
There's another section on IT Team Rejections. I'll let you read that at your leisure.
