Global Survey Deprovisioning

To understand current practices regarding identity and access management, One Identity commissioned Dimensional Research to survey IT security professionals. A portion of the survey focused on current processes with regard to deprovisioning and investigated how respondents manage dormant accounts. A total of 913 individuals completed the online survey and all had responsibility for IT security as a major part of their job. The survey was conducted in late July and early August 2017. Respondents represented the U.S., Canada, U.K., Germany, France, Australia, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

Don’t have a lot of time to check out the complete results from our recent survey? No problem. We’ve created an executive summary to highlight key results of the survey. In it, you learn about these notable findings:

  • Seventy percent of respondents are not very confident all former employees are fully deprovisioned in a timely manner, meaning their accounts remain open and accessible even after an employee changes roles or leaves an organization.
  • Only nine percent are confident they have no dormant accounts.
  • Seventy-one percent are “concerned” about dormant accounts.
  • Only one in four are “very confident” that user rights and permissions in their organizations are correct for the individuals’ roles.
