Productivity, but at what cost?
As the public sector increasingly engages with other agencies, citizens and the wider business community, employees are increasingly turning to ‘Shadow IT' (unsanctioned digital platforms or collaboration tools) to get their work done.
Understand the risks for your organisation
While these may bring some productivity improvements, they introduce the following serious risks and security-related costs to the organisation:
- Security and confidentiality
- Traceability and auditability
- Data ownership
- Data sovereignty
- Cyber Attack
Avoid the use of Shadow IT
This briefing explores these risks in more detail and offers insight to the value of extending your existing information management system to enable easy, secure and governed document sharing and collaboration with anyone outside of the firewall.
