Protecting Company Knowledge During The Great Resignation: Cybersecurity Best Practices

The Great Resignation isn’t slowing down. But, as this article from Onna discusses, it’s not just the loss of people that’s an issue, it’s the challenge of protecting company knowledge as well!

Their article (How to protect your company’s knowledge during the Great Resignation) illustrates just how extensive The Great Resignation is continuing to be. According to Joblist’s 2022 Job Market Report, three out of four full-time employees are planning to quit their job in the next 12 months. Pay is a major reason why, as 79% of employed job seekers believe they can make more money by switching jobs than staying put in the current market. Remote work is another reason — 61% of all job seekers say they are interested in remote job opportunities. Yet, according to another recent report, HR spends eight times more time creating, implementing, and administering onboarding programs than offboarding programs.

In today’s current employment environment, it’s key for organizations to bolster their offboarding programs to retain and protect knowledge within the organization, especially as companies use a variety of collaboration tools these days.


Yet, with so many employees switching jobs, retaining organizational knowledge is Job #1, protecting company knowledge from departed employees is Job #1a. And a lot of organizations are struggling there as well. How much are they struggling? A lot more than you might think! And what can you do about it? Check out their article here to find out! Don’t be “resigned” to putting your data at risk! See what I did there? 😉

So, what do you think?  What is your organization doing regarding protecting company knowledge from departed employees?  Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
