IT professionals are fearful that sensitive data will fall into the wrong hands if cloud-based services are used by their organizations, but many acknowledge that the risks are being ignored by some employees who may already be using cloud computing, according to a new survey.
The Security of Cloud Computing Users study, conducted by the Ponemon Institute and sponsored by CA, surveyed IT professionals in Europe and the United States. Those surveyed acknowledged that some parts of the organization may be using cloud computing services without their knowledge. More than 50% of respondents in the US said their organization is unaware of all the cloud services deployed in their enterprise.
