Will your staff be able to detect a phishing email? Does your staff know best practices to prevent a malware attack? Will your staff know if a virus has infected the computer system?

Respondents in the 2015 Ponemon Breach Survey identified employee negligence as the number 1 concern related to health care security. That means that survey respondents believed that employee negligence is a greater risk than risks associated with cloud storage, mobile devices, system failures, malicious attacks, and identity theft.

So, do respondents worries bare out? Yes! Unintentional employee actions were responsible for 46% of the breaches in 2013- beaten only by lost and stolen devices. When you add intentional employee acts and malicious insider conduct with unintentional employee acts, it gets worse. Do the math; respondents reported that 68% of reported breaches were caused by employees and malicious insiders!

Employees can also be the key to detecting security threats and breaches. Respondent in 2014 Ponemon Breach Survey says that 46% of the time employees were the one to report a health care security breach.
