Workplace Behaviours

How your employees behave in the workplace can have a real impact on the security risks and vulnerabilities your organisation faces. Encouraging your employees to think and act in a security-conscious and collaborative manner, as well as to take personal responsibility for their actions, can help prevent incidents and breaches from happening.

Poor security practice can also leave visitors and contractors with the impression that your organisation has a relaxed attitude to security, indicating it could be an easy target.

The Workplace Behaviours campaign kit is designed to help individual staff members ensure that they are getting the security basics right, in and around the workplace.

Of course, different organisations will expect their staff to behave in different ways, depending on what’s specifically at risk. But if you’re stretched for resources, this easy-to-use kit offers practical security advice that everyone can follow, and the materials to run a campaign.

The ‘Workplace Behaviours’ campaign addresses seven key issues:

  • Staff not wearing their pass in the office or forgetting to remove it when they leave work.
  • Computers left unlocked when staff are away from their desk.
  • Staff continuing sensitive discussions outside the meeting room.
  • Sensitive documents being left out for anyone passing by to see.
  • Sensitive materials being destroyed inappropriately, such as not using a shredder.
  • Staff ignoring company security policies and measures.
  • Letting visitors walk around the office unescorted or without a pass.

The campaign kit consists of the following materials:

For further information on the materials, to share feedback, or for editable versions (as Indesign files) please email [email protected].

We have also included practical guidance for managers on how to evaluate a behaviour change campaign.
