We're all worried about being the victim of a data breach - having a credit card or Social Security number stolen by a hacker. But a new report out from the information security service Shred-It notes that we need to pay attention to low-tech protection as well.
The report said that common workplace occurrences may be the cause of many security breaches. It found that 65 percent of managers expressed concern that their employees or contractors had printed and left behind a document that could lead to a data breach.
Seven in 10 managers said they had seen or picked up confidential documents left in a printer, and more than three in four managers admitted that they had inadvertently sent an email containing sensitive information to the wrong person. And 88 percent reported having received an email containing sensitive information they were not intended to receive from someone within or outside of their organization.
