Only one in three? I would hazard that is being conservative.
One in three information technology professionals abuses administrative passwords to access confidential data such as colleagues’ salary details, personal e-mails or board-meeting minutes, according to a survey.
U.S. information security company Cyber-Ark surveyed 300 senior IT professionals, and found that one-third admitted to secretly snooping, while 47 percent said they had accessed information that was not relevant to their role.
Ah, there it is. One-third admitted to it. OK, that is more what I would expect. Now for the other two thirds get the electric cattle prod and some thumb screws and I’m sure they’ll start singing.
