Cyber risks created outside the IT department's realm remain IT's problem, according to a new survey. The results point to the importance of putting identity at the center of an organization's overall IT security strategy. Organizations therefore need to better define and enforce corporate policies and address risks like shadow IT and BYOD, the survey said. There is an interesting "identity trilemma," according to Juliette Rizkallah, CMO of SailPoint, an internet identity management firm, which commissioned the study. "Organizations are adopting their own SaaS solutions to appease business users through shadow IT, all while not properly adhering to company security policies," she said. "This is a dangerous combination that creates serious exposure points for companies today. Identity governance is still the key in protecting these points of exposure and mitigating the risks inherent in today's hybrid IT environment." Six hundred senior IT decision-makers at organizations with at least 1,000 employees were interviewed by Vanson and Bourne in Australia, France, Germany, Italy, United Kingdom and the United States.
