What is Shadow IT?
“Shadow IT” refers to any IT-related activities happening inside the organization but outside the supervision of the official IT department. This includes systems, devices, software, applications, and services used without explicit IT approval.
The biggest contributor to shadow IT is the rise of web-based business applications. This includes sanctioned SaaS and many tools that are not often not considered, but often house critical business data. Are you aware of all of the software your team uses to run the day to day and the risks that might be lurking in the shadows?
