Encryption, corporates have heard of it
Enterprises are routinely storing corporate password files in the cloud through Microsoft s OneDrive backup technology.
OneDrive is the most common Office 365 application, with 79.1 per cent of organisations using it, according to a study by cloud control tech vendor Skyhigh Networks.
Businesses and employees are still taking a relaxed approach to document security, especially when you consider the high frequency of threats, said Hawthorn.
This percentage will only increase as OneDrive becomes more tightly integrated to the rest of the suite.
Hawthorn concluded that the need for employee training is particularly acute in heavily regulated industries such as financial services or healthcare, two of the biggest users of Office 365.
The study found that the occurrence of Office 365-related threats is common, 71.4 per cent of companies have at least one compromised account each month, 57.1 per cent have at least one insider threat and 45.9 per cent have at least one privileged user threat.
