Employees who become distracted at work are more likely to be the cause of human error and a potential security risk, according to a snapshot poll conducted by Centrify at Infosec Europe in London this week.
Of the 165 respondents, more than a third (35%) cite distraction and boredom as the main cause of human error.
Other causes include heavy workloads (19%), excessive policies and compliance regulations (5%), social media (5%) and password sharing (4%).
Poor management is also highlighted by 11% of security professionals, while 8% believe human error is caused by not recognising our data security responsibilities at work.
