Study Concludes: Users Don’t Care – Because Security Gets in the Way!

In light of my recent posts about data security, stewardship and control – stumbled across this article related to another survey about the sorry state of affairs in data security land.

“18% still engaged in unsafe data security practices because they didn’t realize their actions were risky, while 24% didn’t care because they felt it stood in the way of completing a task.”

There is a fair amount of other good data in the story as well, most of which continues to align with our own research and studies into user behaviour – solutions must be simple, ‘in the flow’ of user activities and minimize interruptions/disruptions to normal workflows.
