Most IT staff would steal sensitive company information, including CEO's
passwords and customer details, if they were laid off, according to a
new survey from Cyber-Ark.
A staggering 88 percent of IT administrators admitted they would take
corporate secrets, if they were suddenly made redundant. The target
information included CEO passwords, customer database, research and
development plans, financial reports, M&A plans and the company's list
of privileged passwords.
The research also revealed that, of that 88 percent, a third would take
the privilege password list to gain access to valuable documents such as
financial reports, accounts, salaries and other privileged information.
Identity management firm Cyber-Ark conducted the survey of 300 IT
professionals in its annual review 'Trust, Security & Passwords'.
