Sila and Ponemon Institute Study Finds Rampant Lapses in Securing Access to Sensitive Information

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 11 ottobre 2019

Sila Solutions Group, a North American technology and management consulting firm, in partnership with the Ponemon Institute, a leading research organization on data protection and emerging information technologies, today released the results of The 2019 Study on Privileged Access Security. The primary takeaway from this study is that insufficient privileged access management (PAM) practices continue to be a critical challenge for many organizations despite significant risks of data breaches and security incidents. According to more than 650 North American respondents, 70 percent think it likely that privileged users within their organizations are accessing sensitive or confidential data for no discernible business need and more than half expect privilege user abuse to increase in next 12-24 months.
Interestingly, the primary reason users have unnecessary access to sensitive resources is that all users at their level are given privileged access, even if it is not required to perform their job assignment. According to respondents, privileged access rights also regularly remain active even after a role change (30 percent). 62 percent of participants felt it likely that their organization assigns privileged access rights that go beyond an individual’s role or responsibilities. This proliferation of access is emphasized with more than 75 percent of respondents having privileged access to three or more IT resources.
According to study participants, the biggest challenges organizations face in granting and enforcing privileged user access rights are:
57 percent – Can’t keep pace with the number of access change requests that come in on a regular basis
48 percent – Lack of a consistent approval process for access and a way to handle exceptions
43 percent – Burdensome process for business users requesting access.
