    Mistakes sometimes happen. But allowing confidential information displayed on screens to be visually hacked is a mistake that IT security professionals in many organisations cannot afford to make. In today’s modern, mobile business environment, visual privacy is more important than ever.

  • Infographic showing how quickly visual hacking can happen

    Visual hacking happens quickly and easily.

    In the Visual Hacking Experiment, sponsored by 3M and conducted by the Ponemon Institute, an undercover white hat hacker was sent into participating corporate offices to gather information using only visual means. The hacker obtained sensitive information in 88% of trials. [2]

    Anyone can be a visual hacker—inside or outside the office.

    Visual privacy isn't just an issue in public places. How many visitors and contractors are in your office on a daily basis? It's not just your employees who may see sensitive data within your organisation.

    Privacy screens – how do they work?

    3M privacy screen filters use advanced microlouver technology to block side views, while providing a crisp, clear view for the intended user. The result? People on either side of you see a darkened screen and nothing more, while you see your screen clearly and unhindered.
