Over-complex IT security costs UK businesses 127 days each year

padlock-597495_1920According to latest figures from IS Decisions, large organisations with 250+ employees can lose 2.7 days a week or 127 days a year because of complex IT security procedures. For small organisations (30 employees), this can take up 15.3 days a year.

In business terms, this is significant: 127 business days is just over 25 weeks – about six months.

The research shows that organisations are becoming more aware of the effect that complex security has on productivity, with 41% saying the day-to-day impact of security on employee productivity is increasing.

Simplify your information security procedures

Having your information security policies and procedures documented proves your commitment to protecting the information you handle, but creating them from scratch can be time-consuming and burdensome.

Large organisations implementing an ISMS (information security management system) are looking at maintaining up to 1,000 pages, which can be extremely laborious.

On the other hand, using authoritative and ISO 27001-compliant (the world’s most recognised information security standard) templates is a great solution for businesses of all sizes.
