Improve employee morale

This may seem irrelevant to security until you recall the large percentage of breaches accounted for by discontented and former employees (as mentioned earlier, this number may represent up to 65% of intrusions [Handley, 2002]). Simply making sure employees are happy can greatly reduce your chance of attack, and can definitely decrease your chance of attack by an attacker with additional inside knowledge.
