Former employees are behind more than 10% of data breaches.
Let that sink in for a moment…
That person you once trusted to help grow your business, might be the reason you have to explain to your loyal customers that their data has fallen into the wrong hands.
Think it wouldn’t happen to your business?
Around 50% of ex-employees still have access to corporate applications. Can you be sure that everyone who has left your company – on good or bad terms – has had their access to absolutely everything revoked?
- What’s your protocol for employees who are leaving the business?
- Do they have access rights taken away as soon as they hand in their notice?
- Is certain information restricted as soon as you know they intend to leave?
If you don’t have a procedure in place already, now’s the time to create one.
Make someone responsible for ensuring this is done properly and build a checklist together.
Don’t leave yourself open to a breach that’s almost certainly preventable.
