One in Three IT Staff Snoops on Co-Workers

According to Reuters, one in three information technology professionals abuses administrative passwords to access confidential data such as colleagues' personal emails and salary details.

Cyber-Ark surveyed 300 senior IT professionals and found 1/3 admitted to snooping, and 47 percent had admitted to accessing information not relevant to their role.

Cyber-Ark found that administrative passwords are changed far less frequently than standard user passwords, with 30 percent being changed only once every 3 months, and 9 percent never being changed, meaning that any past employees would still have access to the systems.
