IT pros can't resist peeking at privileged information
- 42 percent of those surveyed said that in their organisations' IT staff are sharing passwords or access to systems or applications
- 26 percent said that they were aware of an IT staff member abusing a privileged login to illicitly access sensitive information
- 48 percent of respondents work at companies that are still not changing their privileged passwords within 90 days – a violation of most major regulatory compliance mandates and one of the major reasons why hackers are still able to compromise the security of large organisations.
