As a business owner, you know that your company assets contain valuable information. That’s why you work hard to keep your critical assets secure and your company production safe at every turn.
However, the unfortunate reality is that any business could fall victim to a cyberattack or a malicious attack at any time. Data breaches in the form of an insider attack or malicious external attack are prevalent and could strike your business at any moment.
One way to protect against cybercriminals is by implementing User Behavior Analytics (UBA) or User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA). UBAs and UEBAs are a type of technology that can track behaviors on a given network and report when behaviors seem to stray from outside the norm. UBA tools can support insider threat detection and help prevent a malicious attack. Read More

There are a lot of variables to take into account when calculating average employee expenses. From taxes to medical, the cost of an employee can quickly siphon money away from an already hurting business.
When workplace productivity is down, employees are taking time and even more money away from your company—this is called time theft, and it is a very serious issue in the United States.
According to a 2013 Gallup report, unhappy workers cost the U.S. $450 to $550 billion annually to lost productivity. These numbers report that 70% of employees are disengaged at work, with 80% disengaged as a result of a poor manager.
These numbers suggest that companies, overall, should be considering company culture and tracking for productivity. There is a financial cost to reduced productivity and it is most likely eating away at your bottom line. Read More

If you’re not sure where to start, understand that employee tracking software can be valuable in increasing employee productivity, minimizing time theft, and finding hidden insider threats. Read More

Poor productivity in the workplace can eat into your budget.
On average, a majority of employees (89%) waste about 30 minutes a day. A lot of this time is spent on social media and gabbing with other employees. About 30% of those employees might waste up to 3 hours a day! When you add that up, that’s 15 hours a week!
Investing in monitoring software can provide your company and project managers with valuable data so you can learn why overall productivity is going down the drain.
Monitoring software is a type of surveillance program so that you can understand normal employee behavior during work hours, allowing you to create an effective productivity plan and determine what to do if employees are slacking off. Read More

More and more, companies are starting to realize that they need to look at monitoring employee productivity levels to reduce money spent on wasted time. Your employees might spend anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 working hours a day doing non-work-related activities, such as browsing social media, chatting with colleagues, or handling private matters.
The estimated figure for money spent on wasted productivity will differ with each unique company situation, and whether or not your employees are content in their company culture. Experts suggest that nearly all of your employees (89%) are wasting some time at work, with about 30% of your workers wasting at least 30 minutes a day.
While 30 minutes a day might seem minimal, that wasted time can easily add up to two and a half hours a week, which is, simply, costing your company.Read More
