What’s Your Risk Score?

Download Report

At the 2020 RSA Conference, Gurucul conducted a survey about the risky behaviors of IT Security professionals. We wanted to gauge how common it is for IT security personnel – who are most attuned to today’s cyber threats – to engage in risky behaviors. Nearly 300 RSA Conference attendees, across all main vertical markets, completed the survey. Key findings include:

  • More than one third (38%) of respondents send company documents to their personal email.
  • Nearly two thirds (63%) have accessed company documents that have nothing to do with their job roles.
  • 47% of security pros have clicked on a link in an email from someone they didn’t know.
  • Nearly one in five (19%) respondents have abused their privileged access to view sensitive data. (That number spikes to 36% among those who’ve had a poor job performance review.)
  • A fifth (20%) of IT security professionals have voiced their frustrations with work on social media. That number rises to 48% for people who’ve had a poor job performance review.

‛‛ Today’s most damaging security threats do not originate from malicious outsiders or malware but from trusted insiders with access to sensitive data and systems – both malicious insiders and negligent insiders. ’’
