Workplace blame culture is one of the significant factors affecting the success of cloud adoption, according to a new study by enterprise backup and data recovery solutions provider Veritas Technologies.

Businesses are losing critical data – such as customer orders and financial data – because office workers are too scared or embarrassed to report data loss or ransomware issues when using cloud applications, such as Microsoft Office 365.

The study found that 29% of Singapore employees lied to cover up the fact they had accidentally deleted data they stored in shared cloud drives. While 44% said no one noticed their error, in the cases where the accidents were discovered, 17% of respondents reported the data was no longer recoverable.
