Your Company's Employees Know Too Much

Monday May 3rd 2010 by Staff

87 percent of organizations say that employees have too much access to information that isn't necessary for their jobs.

CIO Insight: A new survey by Ponemon and Aveksa shows that enterprises aren't doing a very good job of controlling employee access to company data. In fact, 87 percent of organizations said that employees have too much access to data they don't need, up 9 percent from the 2008 survey on the same topic.

Other findings include the following:

  • 61 percent of organizations approve user access requests without checking them against security policies.
  • 59 percent of companies either don't enforce their access-governance policies or don't have any access-governance policies.
  • 63 percent of organizations say business-unit-specific apps are at the most risk.
  • Nearly 75 percent say cloud computing is making the situation worse.
