Similarities to physcal security
Just last week my office ran an active shooter seminar. What I found interesting is the signs in someone potentially causing physical harm is very simiar to the signs this article has for digital harm. Perhaps someone disgruntled wouldn't dare physically hurting someone but digital harm is more likely?

IT Security Hygiene for employees
I think there is a lot of confusion about what can be seen and who can view it. Frequently we find clients that have their entire Google Drives open. Definite work needs to done on training employees effectively.

Only 78%?
At this point, 78% of organizations report some sort of active monitoring of phone, email, or Internet use I think this number is bigger, most organizations monitor those one way or other if not technology maybe manually checking phone and emails and internet quite often.

Re: IT Security Hygiene for employees
I think there is a lot of confusion about what can be seen and who can view it. There are certain level controls on enterprise social networking tools such as Facebook workplace, but I agree it needs to be adjusted to company culture to avoid issues coming with it.

Re: IT Security Hygiene for employees
Frequently we find clients that have their entire Google Drives open Obviously a bad practice. It needs to be a least privileged access on the drive. ESNs are a little bit different, you need more collaboration options than not.

Passwords in private channels
Private communication channels are worse. Private conversation messages are 165% more likely to contain identification numbers and 76% more likely to contain passwords. I agree, I constanlty see password being shared in slack channels, regardless private or not.

Negative sentiment
The study shows that one out of every 380 public messages receives a negative sentiment score, That makes sense, you can really get a lot out of an ESN site.

Confidential
In a study of over 1 million employee messages, the "Human Behavior Risk Analysis" report found that confidential information is shared in one out of every 118 public communications. This number shows quite high level, in a Slack envirment we tend to share confidential information as we do in email.
