Employees admit they would divulge firm secrets for £1m
It appears as though employee loyalty is at a low in the UK as many have admitted that they could be persuaded to hand over company details for cash.
Questioning commuters at London railway stations, Infosecurity Europe discovered that 37 per cent of people would divulge their firm's secrets if the price was right.
For 63 per cent, this was no less than £1 million, while 10 per cent said they would reveal all if their mortgage was paid off and four per cent admitted they would confess if their credit cards were cleared.
Group event director from Infosecurity Europe Tamar Beck said that "British workers are still basically very honest, but this cannot be relied upon by organisations to protect valuable company information and confidential customer data".
Research from the Institute of Leadership and Management found that executive think their management teams need an optimistic outlook if they are to survive the recession.
