IT Risk Assessment: What is Shadow IT?

In recent years, Shadow IT has become a widespread phenomenon in the corporate world. It refers to the use of hardware or software applications within an organization without the knowledge, approval, or guidance of IT departments. Departments that use these Shadow IT solutions often find themselves unable to keep up with the evolving technology landscape, resulting in security breaches, data loss, and disruptions in business operations.

The Risks of Shadow IT

Shadow IT poses a significant risk to businesses by creating loopholes in IT security protocols. With the proper management of Shadow IT, it’s easier for a business to monitor and control each application’s security parameters, which might lead to data breaches or loss. These breaches could cause irreparable damage to the company’s reputation if sensitive information is stolen or leaked.

Moreover, reliance on Shadow IT can lead to redundant applications and services that need to integrate better with existing IT systems, resulting in the increased cost of IT infrastructure and operations. This situation could further add to the IT team’s workload, resulting in decreased productivity and increased stress.
