Gallup’s 2017 State of the American Workplace report notes that just 33% of workers in the U.S. are engaged at work.

From the telephone to email to intranets to enterprise social networks, businesses have long worked to apply the latest technologies in the hopes of improving efficiency and productivity.

Furthermore, only one in four C-level leaders is well-informed about data security issues.
