Shadow IT Bites Back - Defending Against Attacks

The rise of Shadow IT within businesses is leading to more attacks and security incidents, due to the use of unknown or shadow assets and applications. According to recent research, Shadow IT either led to, or were part of the breach in 45% of UK organisations polled.

With the presence of unknown or undiscovered assets making it difficult for security teams to identify and manage the available attack surface, we will look at the best ways to detect, identify, and address Shadow IT instances, reduce your vulnerability scope, and work with those departments to address the business reasons for turning to unapproved technology.

In this webinar we will:

  • Share the research results from 400 UK and Germany organisations
  • Look at the most common reasons for using Shadow IT
  • How to work with those “rogue” departments
  • How your business can be compromised via the use of unapproved but safe application
