READ BREAKING BAD:
THE RISK OF UNSECURE FILE SHARING


Information leakage through unsecure file sharing is a serious and escalating problem. As the need for beyond-the-firewall collaboration grows, data loss is threatening to surpass data theft as the number-one risk to sensitive business information.

This research paper from the Ponemon Institute defines these challenges in this changing landscape and creates a roadmap for businesses to get control of their information. More than 1,000 IT and IT security practitioners were surveyed about their file sharing practices in the US, UK, and Germany – and their responses, highlighted in this paper, will surprise you.

The study’s authors cover – and uncover – the most pervasive and pressing security issues facing enterprise collaboration today. They specifically target the link between organizational and individual behavior when using popular file-sync-and- share solutions. Key findings include:
  • Organizations are vulnerable to data loss and non-compliance
  • Employees behave badly when it comes to data sharing and collaboration
  • IT has lost control of decision making and their company’s data

61% of employees confess they send unencrypted emails, do not delete confidential documents (in violation of company policy), or accidentally forward files or documents to unauthorized recipients.
