34 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK COMPUTER INSIGHTS, INC 108 Third Street, Bloomingdale, IL 60108 TEL 1-800-539-1233 EMAIL sales@ci-inc.com WEB www.ci-inc.com HOW GOOD IS YOUR USER SECURITY? Today almost everyone understands the need to maintain up to date professional security protection software. The news is full of stories about companies that have suffered cyber-attacks of all kinds. Of these, the worst seem to be Ransomware attacks and they are one of the fastest growing forms of cyber-attacks. These are nothing but modernized extortion. With up-to-date protection most of these attacks can be prevented. Employee Security There is another pervasive, but less recognized threat, that is going on right inside the companies’ walls. The amount of employee misbehavior is hard to measure because it takes so many forms. It can range from petty theft, to information stealing to grand larceny through theft or embezzlement. Who Can You Trust? Deciding who to trust is not easy. It usually takes time to gain trust in an employee and the trust has to be earned by a display of honorable behavior. Psychologists are always searching for better ways to determine who can be trusted and who can’t. In a recent experiment on the subject at the University of Chicago, they determined that the most trustworthy people are the ones that are most guilt prone. Emma Levine, associate professor at the Booth School of Business at the University of Chicago said, “Our research suggests that if you want your employees to be worthy of trust, make sure they feel personally responsible for their behavior and that they expect to feel guilty about wrongdoing.” Source: Sandra Jones for the University of Chicago It’s not an easy task. What Can You Do? Your ERP system must provide the ability for you to control who sees what and who does what. Without this basic protection, your company is surely at risk. The bigger the company, the more important these controls become. In a small family-owned company, everyone often knows everything and that’s ok as long as it is all family. Once you begin bringing in outsiders though, things change. The Business Edge TM A good place to start is to have a good security system built into your ERP software. In The Business Edge TM we have included an extensive security system that is both comprehensive and easy to administer. The management of the company selects the number of security levels. There are 10 levels available, but they do not all have to be used. More than one department can share the same level, reducing maintenance for the System Administrator.
