Employees are returning back to the office… but, according to new research, they’re bringing poor data handling habits back with them.

Surprised? Probably not. 56% of IT leaders believe their employees have adopted bad cybersecurity behaviours while working from home: emailing sensitive data to personal email accounts, at-home printing, and sending misdirected emails just to name a few. 

But data loss prevention (DLP) isn’t their only concern. IT leaders also predict a spike in ransomware attacks and targeted phishing scams. So what can you do to avoid putting your data and systems at risk?

Join Sandeep Amar, CPO at MSCI Inc. and Will Patterson, Customer Success Lead at Tessian alongside Heads of Information Security for this 90-minute virtual boardroom.
