Poor employee cyber hygiene may put companies at heightened risk for attack over the holiday break, according to a new report from T-Systems. T-Systems, the corporate IT and cybersecurity arm of Europe’s largest telecom company, Deutsche Telekom, warns companies that security risks abound when companies allow employees to work over Christmas.  Of those surveyed, 24% said they use free Wi-Fi hotspots to access work-related emails and documents while out of the office, the report found—a major risk, as these insecure portals are easy for hackers to clone. Further, 10% of employees said they use free USB charging points at airports and stations, which can be used to transfer viruses and malware to unsuspecting victims.
