One Identity Research Exposes Major Problem W/Employees Snooping on the Corporate Network

In a recent global survey, One Identity has discovered that most companies are not adhering to best practices regarding user access, control and governance, thus enabling employees to snoop and gain access to unauthorised information on company networks.

Financial performance information data, confidential customer documentation, or a CEO’s personal files are but a few examples of information that could result in huge reputational or financial damage if accessed and exposed by unauthorised individuals or groups. The survey revealed that 67% of UK respondents admitted to accessing information that is not necessary for their day to day work and 42% of UK confessed they had looked for or accessed sensitive information about their companies’ financial performance.
