Data center cybersecurity professionals face many threats on a daily basis—cybercriminals, nation-state attackers, hacktivists, even malicious insiders.
But a company’s own employees are the biggest threat of all, more important than all the others combined, according to a recent survey conducted by Data Center Knowledge and its sister sites in the Informa Tech family.
But it’s not out of malice. “Employees lacking security awareness” was named as the single greatest threat to security by 50 percent of respondents. The next biggest threat, cybercriminals, was far behind at just 18 percent.
