25% of Workers Would Give Away Data for £1000
A new Deep Secure survey underlines how a lack of loyalty among employees can undermine the data protection efforts of companies in the age of GDPR. According to the research, one in four employees would agree to provide threat actors with sensitive company data for the price of £1,000 (around $1,260). Moreover, one in twenty (5%) would even be willing to hand over company data if they did not get paid anything for this.
The report also found that 10% of employees wouldn’t mind selling their organization’s intellectual property (like product specs, code and patents) for £250 (around $315) or even less.
