AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)– De jaarlijkse uitgevoerde Market Pulse Survey van SailPoint wijst op een verrassende discrepantie tussen de groeiende zorgen van werknemers over de veiligheid van hun persoonlijke gegevens en hun houding jegens databeveiliging op de werkvloer. Uit de enquête bleek dat 85 procent van de werknemers negatief zou reageren als een bedrijf persoonlijke informatie van hen zou lekken. Toch stellen dezelfde werknemers hun werkgevers bloot aan dezelfde datalekken, als gevolg van onachtzaamheid en slechte wachtwoorddiscipline. Bovendien brengt de enquête een andere uitdaging voor IT- en beveiligingsmedewerkers aan het licht: 26 procent van de werknemers gaf toe gevoelige informatie naar de cloud te uploaden, met als specifiek doel die gegevens buiten het bedrijf te delen.
SailPoint Survey: 1 in 4 Employees Will Share Sensitive Information Outside the Company
AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)– According to SailPoint’s annual Market Pulse Survey, a surprising disconnect exists between employees’ growing concern over the security of their personal information and their attitudes toward data security practices in the workplace. The survey found that 85% of employees would react negatively if their personal information was breached by a company. Yet these same employees are exposing their employers to the same data breaches through negligence and poor password hygiene. Additionally, the survey highlights an ongoing challenge for IT and security professionals: 26% of employees admitted to uploading sensitive information to cloud apps with the specific intent to share that data outside the company.
SailPoint’s Market Pulse Survey is a global survey designed to measure employee attitudes toward protecting corporate digital assets. The company commissioned independent research firm Vanson Bourne to interview 1,000 office workers at large organizations (with at least 1,000 employees) across the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, the Netherlands and Australia. The report looks at how employees view their individual role in IT security processes, and what (if any) improvements are being made by organizations to adapt to the new business realities.
Key findings from SailPoint’s 2016 Market Pulse Survey include:
“This year’s Market Pulse Survey shines a light on the significant disconnect between how employees view their personal information and that of their employer, which could also include personal information of customers,” said Kevin Cunningham, president and founder of SailPoint. “Today’s identity governance solutions can alleviate the challenge of remembering several passwords and automate IT controls and security policies, but it’s imperative that employees understand the implications of how they adhere to those policies. It only takes one entry point out of hundreds of millions in a single enterprise for a hacker to gain access and cause a lot of damage.”
