The response to stress in an organisation can be linked back to their work culture. For example, 21% of employees said they didn’t tell their IT teams after making a mistake at work, whether that was clicking on a suspicious email or sending the wrong attachment to
someone. This can be linked back to the fear of repercussion, with one in four employees losing their job after admitting a mistake.
Here are a few statistics again supporting that breaches aren’t always malicious. This reinforces the fact that employers need to create the right work culture to support employees, invest in the right tools to protect against mistakes and provide ongoing training
to reduce the risk.
