Employee use of cloud storage services putting UK business data at risk

LONDON: UK businesses are struggling to catch up with employee use of cloud-based storage services and policies to maintain data security, according to security firm WinMagic

Employee use of cloud-based storage services is putting UK business data at risk, a survey of 1,000 office workers has revealed.

Employees are increasingly using cloud storage services such as Google Drive and Dropbox to store work files and data, the survey shows.

This represents a threat to businesses, which are struggling to catch up with employee use of these services and policies to maintain data security, according to security firm WinMagic, which commissioned the survey.

UK companies are placing themselves at risk of cyber attacks and data breaches as a result of rampant use of cloud storage services and unclear or non-existent corporate policies, the security firm warned.
