Fifty-five percent of office-based employees believe there is no harm to their companies when they use a work device for personal communications.* But when employees’ personal data mixes with business information, it becomes potentially discoverable. That means your business could be legally required to review and produce it on a short timeline.
A new survey of more than 1,000 US office workers conducted by Harris Poll on behalf of the developers of Relativity revealed this and more about how employees’ data perceptions and habits make information governance such a challenge and may put employers at risk.
In a 10-page report on the survey findings, David Horrigan—kCura’s [Relativity's] e-discovery counsel and legal content director, award-winning journalist, and former counsel at the Entertainment Software Association—analyzes:
- How employees use social media and corporate email in the workplace
- What office workers say about their companies’ email retention policies
- How much personal data may be floating through companies’ Wi-Fi
- What kinds of data are left behind on work devices from employees’ confidential personal conversations
