The security practices of executives were analyzed in a recent report by Ivanti. According to the report, 96% of leaders say they are at least moderately supportive and invested in their organization’s cybersecurity mandate. Forty-nine percent of CXOs have requested to bypass one or more security measures in the past year.
One in five leaders have shared their work password with someone outside the company and 77% use easy-to-remember password hacks, including birthdates or pet names.
CXOs are three times more likely to share work devices with unauthorized users, such as friends, families and external freelancers. One in three executives admit to accessing unauthorized work files and data, and nearly two in three say that they could have edited those files/data when accessing them.
