Many Employees of Companies have Trouble Controlling Sensitive Data in Email
Nearly half (45%) of employees have accidentally included banking information in email sent to an unintended recipient outside the organization, a new study found.
The Clearswift survey of 600 senior business decision makers and 1,200 employees across the UK, US, Germany, and Australia, shows that more than a quarter of users have been on the receiving end of mis-addressed sensitive information, indicating that the flow of poorly managed private information goes in both directions.
Upon receiving unintended information, 31% of employees say that they would read the email, with 12% admitting they would scroll through to read the entire email chain. Once read, only 27% would delete the email from their inboxes.
