Private cloud storage at work : A case study on how an IT companymitigates that employees use theirprivate cloud storage to store workrelated information (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna fallstudie har undersökt och studerat hur ett företag som arbetar med informationsteknologi (IT) hanterar problemet att anställda lagrar arbetsrelaterad information i sina privata molnlagringstjänster. En enkätundersökning gjordes för att undersöka och jämföra hur olika avdelningar på företaget bland annat använder sin privata molnlagringstjänst och om de är medvetna om risker med molnlagring. En intervju genomfördes med en informant från företaget för att kontrastera svaren från enkätundersökningen. Vidare genomfördes också en valideringsintervju med en informant från ett annat företag som arbetar inom samma bransch.Resultatet visade att anställda som arbetar inom IT-branschen faktiskt lagrar eller har lagrat arbetsrelaterade information i sina privata molnlagringstjänster. En av avdelningarna som deltog i enkäten var informationssäkerhetsteamet. Anställda som arbetar med informationssäkerhet kan antas vara mest pålästa och kunniga vad gäller säkerhet kring information, trots det så visade resultatet att dessa personer var de som använde privat molnlagring mest, i jämförelse med övriga avdelningar. Vidare så visar resultatet också att företagen arbetar med att motverka och upplysa anställda om risker med hur information hanteras, det ena företaget i synnerhet arbetar väldigt proaktivt och tar informationssäkerhet på stort allvar.

Abstract [en]

In this work, a case study was made on one company that is working with IT. The study was made to see how an IT company mitigates and handles the problem that employees use their private cloud storage to store work related information. A survey was sent to three different departments at the company to examine what employees think about private cloud storage and work related information and how and if it differs between different departments. One interview was also made with one informant from the same company to compare with the results from the survey. A second interview with another company was also made to validate the result from the first interview.The results from the survey showed that employees do store or have stored work related information in their private cloud storage, despite that the company policies forbid it. One of the departments that the survey was sent to was the information security team. It can be assumed that employees that work with information security have better understanding about security regarding information and how it should be stored. Despite that did the results show that the information security team was the department that used private cloud storage the most, compared to the other departments. The results from the interviews shows that the companies at least have policies on how and where the employees are allowed to store work related information. One company in particular works really hard and continuously to educate and enlighten its employees to take great care when dealing with work related information.
