Porn? From home but on the computer to the office

In the spring of Coronavirus, smart working convict, porn runs on devices used for work. Yes, because if it is true that a third of Italians say that work is done from home, it is also true that there is more time (that saved by avoiding the journey to the workplace) for non-professional activities. And among these, there is also the viewing content dedicated to an adult audience and enjoyed through the devices used for the job.

To say it is Kaspersky’s latest investigation, a Russian company specializing in computer security, which illustrates how the way of working changed at the time of the Covid-19 pandemic. Among other things, in the report, we find that 44% of Italians – the international average stands at 51% – who admits to having watched adult content, during the period of forced quarantine, did so with the same IT tools used also for work. Which, depending on the websites you visit, it can represent a security risk of the data stored on the device, smartphone or computer that is.

There are, of course, other changes inhabits. For example, 66% of the Italian employees interviewed (55% globally), said he read more news in this period than it did before. Although this can be explained by the willingness of people to stay updated on the pandemic, this activity is carried out in 45% of cases on devices used for work (60% by looking at the numbers globally). However, this habit can involve cybersecurity risks such as that of malware infections, so it is important that employees pay close attention to the web resources visited.

The 43% of Italian employees then use personal email accounts for work and 49% admit to using it more frequently since working from home. 39%, however, use personal messaging apps not approved by IT managers, and 68% said they did so more frequently given the new circumstances.
