Microsoft Teams has quickly established itself as one of THE most useful business tools for the way we work today.
Your employees can communicate and collaborate quickly and reliably no matter where they work.
However, working remotely can expose you to some SERIOUS security risks.
According to new research, nearly half of employees frequently share confidential and sensitive files via Microsoft Teams.
That can be a major issue if employees use personal equipment instead of company-issued equipment… it’s simply not as secure as work devices.
More than half of those people surveyed have shared ‘business critical’ information via personal devices. Worse, 48% admitted to sending files they shouldn’t have – possibly to the wrong person!
So, how can you ensure that your employees are using Teams in the safest and most secure manner possible?
Regular training and cyber security awareness for employees at all levels of your company, from trainee to CEO, is the solution.
And you must ensure that all necessary safeguards are in place to protect your sensitive business data. Because if it fell into the wrong hands, the consequences could be a costly nightmare with legal ramifications. Imagine if sensitive employee information was shared outside of the company…
Remember that even a reputable app like Microsoft Teams is only as secure as the people who use it and the devices on which it is installed.
