Quick Bytes: Unsafe workers.

By Peter Piazza

Seventeen percent of employees have launched a hacking tool or keystroke-logging software on their network in the past year, an increase from 12 percent from the year before. That’s no surprise given that 47 percent of the 351 IT decision-makers interviewed by Websense said employees who received phishing e-mails clicked on the link they found in the message, while a third of those interviewed admitted that they don’t block executables in e-mails. The annual Web@Work survey interviewed 351 information technology managers from U.S. companies of all sizes. @ More results of the survey are at SM Online.
