Be careful how you share files

So you have a big file you need to get over to your printer YESTERDAY and you can’t get it to “send” via e-mail because the file is too big. What should you do? 

The right thing to do is contact your IT department (us!) so we can assist by installing a secure file-sharing application that your entire organization can use if you don’t already have one. 

What you shouldn’t do is download a free copy of Dropbox or some other file-sharing software without telling us and the rest of your team.  “Shadow IT” is a term often used when users in organizations adopt technology without running it through the proper channels, and these kinds of events lead to problems like data sprawl and security breaches. Plus, if we don’t know about it, we can’t manage it or secure it.

The best way to move forward with these kinds of workflow challenges is to get everyone on the same page, workflows are defined, and technology solutions are aligned with organizational policies on the storage and handling of sensitive data.
