5 Enterprise compliance considerations, knowing 33% of employees are gaming and participating in sports gambling on their company PC.
Online gaming is now the worlds largest entertainment industry, opening gamers up to an increased risk of cyber-attacks. Furthermore, coupled with many employees working remotely, much of this is done using a company asset, which opens up a new exposure vector.
Awareness and accepting the reality that our employees would use our work PC for anything other than work is the first step in protecting yourself and being prepared.
The “human firewall” is the final stretch of your security infrastructure, so understanding the top 5 areas of exposure will help to build compliance programs to reduce risk.
Without stating the obvious from a cyber vulnerability perspective, we should also be aware that during a study of 1,000 full time workers, 80% reported playing during work hours and the average lost productivity was 50 min per week.
50 min per week x 52 weeks in a year = Over 40 hours (AKA one entire work week) of productivity per employee. That's a lot of time lost!
A not so obvious one: Have “controlled gaming sessions” that are vetted out, create a positive culture and allow your employees to scratch this itch for 1hr a week!
