75% of IT Believe the Biggest Risks are the Cloud & Email

Last week's post The Mission Takes Priority noted that business leaders, on a mission to get their jobs done are "more reckless than ever with company data". Today a major survey of nearly 500 IT and network security professionals from the world’s leading enterprise organizations highlights this risk as one migrates to the cloud:

"75 percent believe the biggest risks lie in cloud storage and email solutions (e.g., Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, OneDrive, etc.) and email (e.g., Gmail, Office 365)."

There's a reason the large and regulated enterprise block these services, block attachments of even modest sizes and stop outgoing email that may contain sensitive information. It's always good for a laugh when you're trying to deliver a big presentation.

But if you need to get your job done, and that job requires you to share with partners, auditors, regulators or customers - such restrictions are not a solution.

That's why people try workarounds.
