Survey: Employees would sell password for $1000

SailPoint released a survey today that reveals that 1 in 5 employees would sell their work passwords to a third-party organization, as compared to 1 in 7 last year. Of those who would sell their passwords, 44% would do it for less than $1000, and some for less than $100. Compounding this is the fact that 65% use a single password among applications and 32% share passwords with co-workers.

The data comes from a survey of 1,000 office workers at large organizations (averaging 50,000 employees) globally. This year’s survey results show a measurable disconnect between employees’ growing concern over the security of their personal information and the negligence over their data security practices in the workplace. Other interesting findings:

·         More than 2 in 5 employees still have corporate account access after they leave their job

  • 26% uploaded sensitive info to cloud apps with the specific intent to share data outside the company
  • 1 in 3 employees purchased a SaaS app without IT’s knowledge, a 55% increase from last year

This is the 8th year SailPoint conducted this survey, which is designed to measure how employees view their individual role in their companies’ security processes, and what (if any) improvements are being made by organizations to adapt to the new business realities where cyber security perimeters no longer exist.

You can find the release here, and see the full report attached. If you have any questions, please let me know!
