Beware of Security Fatigue

posted in: Blog | 0

Keeping up with all the security hoops to jump through to ensure proper data protection can be exhausting. According to a study done by the National Institute of Standards in Technology (NIST), 63% of participants described experiencing security fatigue, or a weariness or reluctance to deal with computer security. Basic security guidelines are often thrown out the window for the sake of convenience, and this can lead to increased mistakes or data breaches. 

Possible signs of security fatigue include reusing passwords, failure to update systems, turning a blind eye to suspicious activity, and cutting corners when it comes to destroying paper documents and hard drives. Hiring a professional shredder is a valued and necessary step in putting security at top priority. Dallas Shredding Services is dedicated to responsibly and carefully destroy sensitive data.
