Why Employees are the Biggest Threat to Security
You keep hearing how employees are the biggest threat to businesses security, but why is that? As an employer, you might feel like you have all the right systems in place, and as an employee, it’s hard to understand what you possibly could be doing that’s threatening the security of your company’s data! Here are some reasons:
> Use of commercial cloud applications.
> Employee-owned mobile devices.
> Employees working from home and offsite.
> Employees not following security polices.
Businesses are made up of people, and people have to be continuously trained to help diminish the threat to the company’s data and systems. We are rolling out a tool to help our clients with this. Learn more!
Introducing Chris Frieberg – Our Newest IT Support Specialist!
“At the end of the day, knowledge is nothing, nor is my journey in life, unless I’m able to share it and serve others.”
Chris was born in Aurora, CO but mainly grew up in South Dakota. He spent the last two and a half years traveling for an IT Healthcare firm and decided to reel in his travel adventures back to his native state of Colorado. During his time traveling, he worked on eight different hospital merger projects involving new infrastructure deployments, client domain migrations, EHR upgrades, managing technicians, and desktop support. Over his professional career, he’s worked in Health Insurance, 401(k), a bit of accounting work, but found that IT is the most stimulating, challenging, and rewarding career.
He loves helping people, learning from the tech gurus, and applying what he knows to serve customers, friends, and family the best he can. Chris says at the end of the day, knowledge is nothing, nor is his journey in life, unless he’s able to share it and serve others.
In his spare time he enjoys hiking, golf, computer games, eating at new restaurants and recently got into archery. He wants to do his first hunting experience ever in Colorado and admits he needs to do a lot practice with his bow first. He’s also a Dallas Cowboys fan and continues to watch them as they lose. Chris says one day it will pay off and he’ll see them win a Super Bowl in person.
