According to a recent Teleport survey, 83% of security professionals say it is difficult to control whether former employees still have access to information infrastructure.
The survey was conducted with a total of 1,000 people, including IT professionals, DevOps engineers, and system security officers.
Access to infrastructure and security requires constant vigilance and technological superiority, so that important assets and data can be assured. But what happens when employees tasked with deploying and managing applications and databases leave the organization with confidential information.
When highly skilled employees leave the company, organizations must always ensure that access is granted only to current employees.
According to the survey results, more than half (58%) are concerned and worried at a “normal” level about former employees leaving about the former employees leaving with inside information, or taking with them. skills in how their organizations access information infrastructure. More than a quarter (27%) are “very concerned”, indicating an urgent need for a reliable solution.
Although the problem is recognized, it is not the perception that is important, but the implementation. More than three-quarters (77%) of those in the “very concerned” group said their organization had implemented new security methods but this caused difficulties for existing employees.
Due to the nature of the IT industry, accessing the infrastructure is a shared responsibility among the various stakeholders. The question is who is most responsible for these issues? 40% of respondents said the responsibility lies with the security staff, while 33% said DevOps and engineering should be held accountable. Instead of pursuing a one-size-fits-all solution that ignores the needs of individual teams, an infrastructure access system should enable centralized enforcement of access policies according to specific protocols. .
