As your workforce becomes more mobile and business demands productivity around the clock, visual privacy becomes a growing risk.

According to 3M Visual Hacking Experiments carried out, during 63 per cent of trials the visual hacker obtained sensitive company information in less than half an hour.

Furthermore, nearly four pieces of private information were visually hacked per trial.

Do you know where your data is? And who’s looking at it? Your sensitive information may be at risk and easy to obtain from visual hackers. Understanding their approach can help shape your visual privacy policy.
