Data Breaches

The 4 Types of Collaboration Habits That Make Information Security Breaches an Inevitability

Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, more people are working remotely than ever before. On the one hand, productivity hasn't really suffered as there are a large number of cloud-based tools that make it possible to be just as productive outside of the office as you are in it. But on the other hand, there are also certain types of collaboration habits that make security breaches no longer a matter of "if" but "when." Understanding what these are is the best way to avoid them at all costs.
