Data Breaches - The Importance of Training
This is such an important topic these days. With the rise in data breaches, it's critical to ensure that employees are trained on any and all technology to prevent accidental breaches. The fact that 45% of employees are reporting a lack of training is a call for action.

Re: Data Breaches - The Importance of Training
@AndyJonesXerox, I agree that employee education is of the utmost importance to every business these days, especially those that deal with confidential information that could lead to legal troubles if it were leaked due to employee negligence. It is definitely alarming that 45% of employees are reporting a lack of training, but it is also troubling that may companies view training as a one-time "set it and forget it" endeavor, leading to "trained" employees who lack sufficient security knowledge or underestimate the importance of their training.
