Threat Awareness: Part Four of Canon Article Series on Information Governance
by Ken Neal
October 6, 2017
This is the final article I am sharing in a series adapted from the new eBook we recently issued, “Minimize Business Risk: Top 5 Information Governance Obstacles You Must Tackle Now.” The eBook was sponsored by Canon Business Process Services and written by AIIM, the association that provides independent research, education and certification programs to information professionals.
This article asks a critical question: Are your employees downloading malware? When employees download files from LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube and others, they risk the possibility of downloading malware and other viruses. It is imperative that they keep their anti-virus/malware protection software up-to-date. Information Governance (IG) policies should stipulate the need to monitor how these platforms are used and educate department heads on what the company considers to be best practices. One of the best ways to address the issue of data security threats is through education and awareness.
