You might want to think twice before laying off any IT administrators because it appears they can, and more importantly will, walk away with all your company secrets.
survey from Cyber Ark has found that of 300 IT security professionals questioned, 88% would steal valuable and sensitive company information if laid off tomorrow.
Some would walk away with the CEO's password, others would take customer databases and, most worryingly, a third would nick the company's list of privileged passwords, giving them access to all the information on the network.
A third of the administrators questioned also admit to snooping around the network looking at confidential information like salary details and personal e-mails.
So, don't mess with your IT people, they've got the power and they're not afraid to use it.
