Eleven months past one, and the new year is in sight. Before we turn the page to look back on all of the team’s accomplishments in 2022, let’s take a look at where we’ve been for a month. It’s always worth celebrating the individual wins that add up to year-end achievements.
We kicked off November with the release of DTEX’s 2022 Top Insider Risk Trends for Global Enterprises. This report explores the top insider risk trends of the DTEX i3 The team’s actual investigations and highlights how vulnerabilities discovered by the team could impact your business.
Here are some of the key findings of the report:
- When employees leave a company, 12% of them take with them information about the company that is not related to their work.
- That number jumps to 50% for employees who walk out with sensitive information about projects they owned or supported.
- We’ve seen the gig economy thrive, as unauthorized third-party work on enterprise devices has increased nearly 200% in the last 12 months.
- Some people might be tempted to think that’s not a problem, but it’s important to note that some of this side work is in direct competition with their employer’s business.
- Something HR departments and managers need to think about as we move into the holiday season, workforce engagement is slow to ramp up after the holidays, with productivity dropping by as much as 50%.
