Although many employees may feel safe while travelling for business, there are data breach vulnerabilities around every corner, with devastating repercussions.

In 2017, more than 24,000 records were compromised in an average data breach, according to the Ponemon Institute. With so many records at risk, employers must be aware of their areas of vulnerability.

Employees who are unaware of proper policies and processes can be the biggest risk to organizations. Sharing passwords, carrying sensitive information unnecessarily, and leaving information unattended in public places can leave an employer at risk.
