Quick Poll Results: Do IT Professionals Follow IT Security Best-Practices

It should be a fair assumption that the more knowledge we have about threats, the more cautious we will be. For example, a hiker who is educated about dangerous animals, poisonous plants and harmful bugs is going to proceed down a nature trail much more carefully than the casual jogger who knows little about the forest. By that same thinking, an IT professional who understands security threats should be more cautious when navigating the Internet, right?

Last month’s contractor quick poll set-out to prove that theory. We asked IT contractors which password mistakes they made recently. As expected, everybody takes the odd shortcut, but surprisingly, 80% of respondents said they use the same password in multiple places and don’t change their passwords frequently. Are you shocked with these results or are they what you would expect?

Quick Poll Results: Is There a Place for Pets in the Workplace?

In last month’s contractor quick poll, we asked our readers what they thought about pet-friendly offices. Workplace trends are seeing more and more of them today (including at Eagle); however, many other companies prefer to restrict the policy to support animals only.

Typically our Quick Polls get results with an obvious winner and most of our readers agree with each other. It looks like this time we found a topic that has the community divided. After a solid month published on the Talent Development Centre, the results are in and while close to half of the surveyed IT contractors are happy about pet-friendly client sites, an equal amount see no place for them.
