Unauthorised file sharing – Yes, we do that ! + Infographic
Here are the results of an interesting survey, conducted by Workshare. The main results are in the infographic but here are some of the other findings:
• 70% of legal professionals do not have direct authorization from their IT department to use consumer file sharing applications.
• 77% of legal professionals use their personal devices for work, more than any other industry surveyed.
• The majority (88%) of these workers also use free file sharing services to collaborate, up 4% from 2012.
COMMENT: Obviously Workshare has a solution that will address this issue (as do some other vendors) but is the BYOD horse already out of the stable and it’s now a little late to do anything?
