C-suite Ignore Risk


    While Canadians are more aware of information security risks than ever before, Shred-it’s ‘4th Annual Security Tracker’ shows business leaders have taken little to no action to decrease risk of reputational damage or disruption to their business operations. Only 42 per cent of c-suite executives admit to having a protocol in place for storing and disposing of confidential data that is strictly adhered to by all employees, and only half concede to having a locked container and a professional shredding service. The study also found that 10 per cent of c-suite respondents admit to throwing out sensitive documents without shredding them, a number which has risen significantly since last year.
