Stricter Security Controls Needed as Over half UK Workforce Search for New Job


Ilex International has urged businesses to put strict security controls in place in preparation for the year, ahead of mass staff migration. Research shows that over half (59%) of the UK workforce is actively looking for a new job in 2016.

The company says its report, ‘Staff migration: The security impact to businesses’, emphasises the importance of controlling access to systems and sensitive data especially when employees leave.

The movement among the UK workforce could result in serious security implications for businesses, according to Ilex International. With 39% of large businesses taking up to a month to close dormant accounts, businesses are leaving the door open to opportunistic hackers and disgruntled former employees. Large businesses performed better than small and medium size businesses, with 58% removing access to data on or before the day of departure, compared to 56% of medium and 32% of small businesses.
