    IT directors fear their staff most when it comes to security



    No matter how many policies and training schemes are in place at firms, basic human error still poses the most likely threat to a company's IT security, say IT directors.

    Network security firm Clavister commissioned a YouGov survey of 212 IT directors and found that 86% believed that the most likely cause of IT security issues came from their employees.

    They said the reasons for this were down to staff ignoring, not being made aware of, or not being sufficiently trained on security policies, as well as making mistakes or committing industrial espionage.

    The findings show that 31% of IT directors believe the most likely cause of IT security issues is staff consciously ignoring security policies, and 37% say they are down to human error.
