Are 88% Of IT Admins Really On The Verge Of Stealing Sensitive Company Info?
from the unlikely dept
You can't trust your IT admin -- or at least that's the story being pushed by a security firm that released the eye-catching study results saying that 88% of IT admins surveyed would take "sensitive company" info such as passwords, if they were fired. We've all heard stories about disgruntled tech workers, so perhaps some part of this feels true, but that 88% number just seems way too high. The security company obviously has every reason to push a high number, as it's goal is to sell solutions that help deal with this supposed "problem." And, of course, it fails to release the actual details of the survey, such as how the questions were worded. While I'm sure there are some IT admins who would do so, it seems highly suspect to claim that almost 90% of IT admins would act in such a manner.
