Unauthorised access to data

Around 14% of people claim that over the past five years, using technology provided by their employers, they have been able to access data at work they were not authorised to see.

In terms of specifics around what employees saw that they should not have had access to, 7% said it was the salaries of their managers/colleagues; 6% said private correspondence between their employers and clients; while 4% have seen personal financial details of clients and/or colleagues. Some 5% have also seen private photos belonging to someone else, and 3% have seen health records of third parties.

The findings are from DSA Connect which says this huge risk around the security of a data held on employers’ systems could leave them particularly exposed to more fraud and data breaches during the coronavirus crisis.
