Are you using Teams to share sensitive data?

Microsoft Teams has fast become one of the most useful business tools for the way we work today. No matter where your team work, they can communicate and collaborate quickly and reliably.
But this remote way of working can also open the door to some series security issues.
Philip Abrie Technical Director at ILUX talk highlights some of the pitfalls you need to be aware of.

New research shows that nearly 50% of employees frequently share confidential and sensitive files via Teams.

This is a particular problem if employees are using personal equipment rather than a company-issued setup. It’s simply not as secure as work devices.

More than half of people surveyed say they’ve shared ‘business critical’ information using personal devices. Worse still, 48% admitted they’ve accidentally sent files they shouldn’t have – possibly to the wrong person!

So how can you be sure that your people are using Teams in the safest, most secure way?

The solution lies with regular training and cyber security awareness for employees at all levels of your business – from trainee to CEO.

You need to make sure you have all the right safeguards in place to protect your sensitive business data. If it fell into the wrong hands, the results could be an expensive nightmare, potentially with legal consequences. For example, imagine if sensitive employee information got shared outside of the business.

Remember, even a trusted app like Teams is only as safe as the people who use it and the devices it’s installed on.

If you need help with cyber security and how we to optimise hybrid working, get in touch.
