Life after graduation
Graduates and other employees have revealed that the group of fellow employees they mistrust most are the temporary members of staff.
According to study, compiled by Cyber-Ark software, cleaners, the sales team and security guards were all allied with the temporary staff as least trusted people in the workplace
And following this group were the board of directors, who were mistrusted by ten per cent and the PR and marketing personnel who scored the same percentage.
Commenting on the figures, Calum Macleod, European director of Cyber-Ark said: "In an organisation you never know who you can trust! There is increasing evidence to show that most breaches are carried out by insiders who are those people you least suspect such as the temporary staff who may be paid by your competitors to extract vital information."
He added: "The findings of this survey show that there is distrust across all groups of workers"
The survey also revealed how one-in-three respondents admitted to misusing their IT privileges by looking at secure company files.
