One in three IT workers access workers information

  • New York (NY) – One in three IT administrators admit to accessing co-workers’ confidential data, according to a new survey Cyber-Ark.  The company interview 300 senior IT professionals and administrators and found that many admitted to using administrative passwords to access emails, board minutes and even salary information.  47% admitted to access information that wasn’t relevant to their jobs.

    The survey also found that only 30% of these passwords were changed every quarter and that 9% were never changed.  This means IT staff that were fired can also access the same information.
