Across Europe manufacturing is experiencing a period of globalisation, innovation and consolidation. But in spite of the need for rapid access to information, manufacturers are the least likely to trust employees with information, according to research from Iron Mountain and PwC.
• Nearly one half believe that their employees represent a serious threat to information security.
• Almost one quarter have no plans to invest in training to address information risk.

• Close to one third do not communicate with their staff on the issue.
The study suggests that the apparent lack of trust in employees could be a symptom of the sector’s preoccupation with data breaches. Making security training and communications part of information management practices could help employees see the importance of information security and promote a business-wide culture of information responsibility.
