Read the results of a survey of over 1,000 IT professionals in the U.S., U.K. and Germany about their organizations’ file sharing practices, now available in this unsettling report from Ponemon Institute. It reveals the file sharing issues that make enterprises vulnerable to data loss and compliance violations, and shows that business leaders are not responding to the in-house risk of ungoverned file sharing practices.

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.
