If it seems that -- despite your company's best efforts to educate users about security -- users are actually behaving less responsibly, don't panic. Your organization isn't the only one.

In fact, Cisco Systems Inc. today is releasing the results of a disturbing third-party study it commissioned over the summer which proves conclusively that -- in many businesses all over the world -- remote users are actually engaging in more insecure behavior than they did the previous year.

About 32 percent of respondents said they "don't see anything wrong" with sharing their work computers with friends and family, and 32 percent also said their "company doesn't mind" when they do. Twenty-nine percent said they don't think sharing computers with friends or family increases security risks.
