Survey Finds IT Pros Retain Security Access at Past Employers
SAN FRANCISCO -- Apparently, security involving former IT employees of enterprises has more holes in it than most people think.
According to a new survey released Feb. 16 that canvassed more than 1,000 employees and 500 IT decision-makers in the U.S., 10 percent of IT professionals admit they have retained secure access to corporate systems from previous jobs. They also say that can still get into those systems, even if they have vacated the organization.
The survey results were announced at the RSA conference, which continues through Feb. 18.
The research, commissioned by Quest Software and collected by Harris Interactive, focused on how IT professionals and their employees use policies and technologies to manage and protect users' electronic identities. The results emphasize how control of these technologies, or lack thereof, is causing concern about insider threats to IT security, Quest said.
