Errors can happen every day, and that can mean lost profits and unhappy customers. You can prevent some of these common errors by keeping your employees trained on new technology and aware of different security issues that might affect your business. Let’s take a closer look at some common employee errors that might cost your business.

Misusing Equipment

Misuse of equipment or software can be one of the most common errors that can severely impact your business. If an employee pushes the wrong button, or series of buttons, then he or she could cause a ripple effect of mistakes. Setting access parameters based on role or responsibility level helps limit access to sensitive data.

Misunderstanding Security Measures

Security is crucial to the continued safety of your business, your employees, and your customers. Although keeping the hardware, software, and network secure and up-to-date is critical. There is the change for human error as well. If an employee accidentally opens a phishing email—spam that is meant to look legitimate—then your entire network could be compromised. It is imperative that your employees understand how important security is to your business.

Using Outdated Technology

If technology is not kept current, there’s the risk of the device no longer being supported by the vendor.  And, there’s a risk that there will be security issues due to no more patches and updates.  Also, staff may be burdened with a slow and cumbersome device that costs productivity.
