What is Shadow IT? Examples, Risks, and Solutions

How do organizations mitigate risk without full oversight of their it solutions stack.

Shadow IT is defined as any unauthorized hardware, applications, or software implemented and managed by departments other than IT. With the rise of cloud-based SaaS solutions, shadow IT use has exploded — and could be up to ten times higher than known IT usage.

Shadow IT often seems innocuous. But it can leave the enterprise open to significant risk. From regulatory noncompliance to data exfiltration, organizations have good reason to want to prevent shadow IT in their digital workplaces.

Why Do People Use Shadow IT?

To tackle shadow IT, organizations must first understand what drives employees to use it. Most people want to do their jobs as efficiently and effectively as possible. That means using tools to help speed up repetitive processes, cut through red tape, and make work easier. If the organization doesn’t provide the right tools for the job, employees will go out and find them for themselves.

Any program can become part of a shadow IT network if it isn’t approved and regulated by the organization. Even — perhaps especially — tools that were built for enterprise use. And sometimes software decisions are nothing more than a matter of personal preference.

If the enterprise uses Microsoft Teams to communicate but the dev team unilaterally decides to switch to Slack, then Slack becomes part of that organization’s shadow IT. If Marketing uses Pages instead of O365, or Sales uses Dropbox instead of the company-approved file storage platform, they are introducing shadow IT.

More Examples of Shadow IT

Greg links his work email to his Outlook account on his personal phone to circumvent security protocols that prevent him from accessing his messages on the road. He shares this tip with his colleagues, who all follow suit.

Sally prefers managing her schedule through Asana instead of Basecamp. She invites members of her team to join her project and they migrate away from the company-sanctioned tools.

Jose needs to split a PDF to remove confidential information ahead of a big meeting. He uploads the file to a free website to modify the document. The site works so well that he downloads the freemium tool for future use and encourages the rest of his department to do the same.

Shadow IT software typically enters the workplace to fulfill an unmet need. When searching for where it exists in your enterprise, consider the common activities that employees perform and the potential roadblocks that make doing their jobs harder.

  • Do they have tools to create and edit common file types?
  • Can they communicate effectively with internal and external contacts?
  • Is it easy to access, share, and collaborate on documents?
  • How many security steps does it take to log into everyday programs?

Cloud-based applications form the bulk of shadow IT in most organizations. Each department within the enterprise has its own roles and requirements, and they all have dedicated software solutions available. From Marketing to Sales to HR, it’s important to speak to stakeholders across the entire organization to understand all the different IT solutions that are currently in use.

What is Shadow IT Risk?

If the purpose of shadow IT is to help employees to work better, what’s the problem? Especially if workers are using programs designed for enterprise use. It’s tempting to dismiss shadow IT as an inevitable part of doing business, and consider its risks overinflated. But without oversight from legal, compliance and IT officers, shadow IT can leave the organization vulnerable to data exfiltration, regulatory noncompliance and more.

Security Gaps and Data Exfiltration

Perhaps the biggest risk posed by shadow IT is to your company’s data. When employees use unauthorized programs to store and share proprietary information, the organization loses control over where that data ends up — or who ends up seeing it. That’s a big problem when 83% of IT professionals report their coworkers store company information on unsanctioned platforms (G2).

Shadow IT case study: The increase in employees working remotely since the onset of the pandemic has gone hand-in-hand with a rise in data leaks. Incidents are up 63% , with exposure from shadow assets increasing 40% in 2021 alone. More than half of all cyber attacks now stem from shadow IT.

Regulatory Noncompliance

Also of significant concern to modern enterprises, shadow IT is often used, intentionally or not, to circumvent legal and regulatory compliance measures. Staff members storing or sharing PII/PCI/PHI via private channels won't pass any audits.

Companies that must abide by rules and regulations such as HIPAA, FINRA, or CMMC 2.0 are particularly vulnerable, but any organization can find itself in hot water due to shadow IT. If you don’t have full oversight of where employees are creating or storing data, you can’t exercise compliance with legislation such as GDPR or CCPA.

Shadow IT case study: The banking industry was hit with a series of wide-reaching investigations — and record-breaking fines — after the SEC and other regulatory authorities began investigating the use of messaging apps for business purposes. The SEC has long made it clear that the Securities and Exchange Act retention rules apply toward any form of modern communication, including collaboration and messaging apps. Institutions which fail to wrap their arms around all the ways their employees are communicating leave themselves open to massive risk as a result.

System Inefficiencies

One of the goals of an IT solutions stack is to integrate programs so employees can work efficiently. But if one team switches to a different application, that can create problems when working with others. Variations in user access and edit permissions between programs can create unnecessary barriers that prevent different departments from collaborating effectively.

A wider-reaching impact of shadow IT is to bake inefficiencies into the wider tech stack. Without full oversight, IT departments cannot accurately assess capacity and can’t plan for performance and security. Any analysis of the stack is incomplete and therefore inaccurate. And reports on business functions themselves might also be incomplete. This loss of control can lead to major decisions being made based on incorrect data.

Wasted Expenditure

The price of software is increasing. With more and more businesses locked into SaaS contracts in place of one-time purchase licenses, IT departments need to manage their costs more carefully than ever. Yet over a third of all software expenditure is wasted, costing U.S. businesses more than $30 billion annually.

Shadow IT impacts expenditure in several ways. First, most products begin to infiltrate the organization through free personal accounts. But to switch on a popular shadow IT program for business use typically requires enterprise licenses that come at considerable expense.

Existing software can also go unused if employees prefer shadow IT solutions, contributing to the $30 billion wasted each year. And shadow IT programs don’t always integrate well with the company’s existing IT infrastructure. This creates additional costs for security and compatibility.

How to Control Shadow IT in the Workplace

Getting ahead of shadow IT usage is critical for IT leaders looking to secure business data and maximize their budgets. The most important step is to audit the existing tech stack to understand where shadow IT already exists within the business infrastructure. Speaking to different departments across the company is fundamental, as each field uses unique software solutions.

Consider how to word questions about shadow IT usage to fully uncover a true picture. Four in five employees admit to using unauthorized IT applications for work purposes (G2). Some may not even consider the tools they use to be shadow IT or understand the risks they have introduced. Focus first on discovery, and then on reeducation to control shadow IT effectively.

Erdoğan victory casts long shadow over Turkish bank profits

Insurers get to grips with evolving net zero standards

Turkish banks are expected to record sharply lower profits in 2023 as President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's reelection signals a continuation of an unpredictable banking sector policy that has upended lenders' business models.

Erdoğan's victory in the May 28 runoff gives him a mandate to maintain the country's unconventional economic approach, which has seen the central bank cut, rather than raise, interest rates and push banks to de-dollarize their balance sheets in response to soaring inflation. Requirements for high rates on bank savings accounts and caps on loan rates are crimping lending income, with further credit rationing likely.

Banks' profitability in 2022 was solid, largely thanks to lower funding costs following interest rate cuts and gains on inflation-linked bonds, Serhan Gok, an Istanbul-based economist and fund manager at investment fund Arista, told S&P Global Market Intelligence. This allowed lenders to achieve a return on equity that was close to inflation levels.

"This year they have no chance [of getting] that kind of return," he said.

Net income at four of Turkey's biggest listed banks — Türkiye Vakiflar Bankasi Türk Anonim Ortakligi, Yapi ve Kredi Bankasi AŞ, Turkiye Garanti Bankasi AS and Akbank TAS — is set to decline by between 24% and 32% year over year in 2023, according to analyst consensus estimates compiled by Market Intelligence. Estimates for Türkiye Is Bankasi AS, Türkiye Halk Bankasi AS and QNB Finansbank AS were not available.

The problem is acute for banks with foreign owners, whose repatriated profits have plummeted in value because of the lira's roughly 80% slump over the past five years. Garanti Bank is owned by Spain's Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria SA and QNB Finansbank by Qatar National Bank (QPSC). Meanwhile, state-owned banks such Vakiflar Bank and Halkbank have explicitly removed profitability targets from their strategies.

Vakiflar Bank, Yapi Kredi, Garanti Bank, Isbank and Halkbank did not respond to requests for comment.


The central bank has been forcing banks to convert deposits from foreign currency to lira as a way to convince savers to remain in lira deposits despite sharply negative real lira interest rates. Banks must buy local currency-denominated government bonds if their lira deposits fall short of certain thresholds. The government also guarantees depreciation-protected lira deposit accounts, and in March it scrapped an interest rate limit on them.

The central bank said June 1 that its "liraization" strategy, introduced in December 2012, is designed to "create an institutional basis for permanent and sustainable price stability" to foster macroeconomic stability and financial stability by bringing down the country risk premium, reversing the currency substitution and promoting a durable decline in financing costs.

"This would create a viable foundation for investment, production and employment to continue growing in a healthy and sustainable way," it said, echoing comments it has made previously.

About 2.40 trillion lira are in these protected accounts, compared to 10.36 trillion lira in other account types.

Such accounts probably pay 30% to 40% yields in dollar terms, Arda Tunca, an independent Bodrum-based economist told Market Intelligence.

"Turkey cannot bear these costs — it's impossible to carry on like this in the long term," Tunca said.

Such a program is "the only way to convince people to remain in so-called Turkish deposit accounts and not demand FX," said Arista's Gok. The accounts will remain necessary unless official interest rates rise to near inflation levels, he said. Since 2021, though, the central bank has slashed the benchmark interest rate by more than half to 8.5%. Annual inflation was 44% in April.

'Not sustainable'

Lending has slowed as it becomes increasingly tough for banks to assess and price risk. Declining credit growth has lowered inflation.

"But it's not a sustainable strategy," said Tunca. " Erdoğan getting reelected was bad news for the banking sector."

The central bank may be amenable to loosening some of its liraization policies, Reuters reported, citing bankers present at a recent meeting with central bank deputy governor Taha Cakmak. The central bank supported a decision by banks to scrap a prepaid premium for those opening depreciation-protected accounts, the bankers said.

Turkey's 12-month rolling current account deficit is about $54 billion. Sovereign debt repayments and energy import costs will likely lead to a balance of payments crisis in Turkey and capital controls, Mustafa Murat Kubilay, a non-resident scholar at the Middle East Institute in Istanbul, told Market Intelligence . It is possible that this may begin in autumn or early winter, he said.

"It's going to be very difficult for the conventional banking sector," said Kubilay, predicting a "credit crunch" in the final quarter of 2023. "Private banks will implement more credit rationing."

Banks also face stricter lending criteria whereby new commercial borrowers must show evidence of the need to pay a supplier. This "credit against expenditure" method sees banks pay creditors directly, meaning borrowers cannot spend the money elsewhere or convert borrowings into foreign currencies.

Since mid-May the rules have also applied to other borrowers including small- and medium-sized businesses and state-owned entities, said Tunca.

As of May 31, US$1 was equivalent to 20.71 Turkish lira.

Roula Khalaf, Editor of the FT, selects her favourite stories in this weekly newsletter.

Fresh from receiving a gong that ranks him above his peers, Turkey’s top central banker has received a further vote of quiet confidence for his management of the country’s consumption -hungry economy.

Erdem Basci, recently chosen as Central Banker of the Year by The Banker, the FT’s sister publication, can now also point to a favourable review by Fitch Ratings for one of the complicated mechanisms with which he seeks to slow the economy down.

A year or so ago international investors and bankers would often complain that they simply didn’t understand Basci’s policies – particularly his use of an interest rate corridor , or range, rather than a single policy rate.

But twelve months on, he is getting better reviews, as the Turkish economy has slowed from its unsustainable rate of 2010-2011 without juddering to a halt. Hefty interest rate rises played their part in the process, as did the European Central Bank’s longer-term refinancing operation, which helped keep foreign funds flowing into Turkey – together with Basci’s technocratic steering of the ship.

One of the key considerations in making sure that the country’s economy doesn’t overheat again is keeping a rein on loan growth, which in the recent past has soared by some 30 per cent a year. Those new loans helped Turks satisfy their hunger for imported goods and so pushed up the current account deficit, perhaps Turkey’s most vulnerable weak spot.

In a note issued on Thursday, Fitch says that a new system of bank reserve requirements “may reduce somewhat the risk of a return to very rapid loan growth”.

Janine Dow, senior director at Fitch, depicts the new measures as more a signal of intent rather than a meaningful constraint on big banks’ lending decisions, but sees them as helpful all the same.

High leverage is not a problem for the Turkish banking system and the fact that they are far away from the [relevant reserve] trigger ratios means that it is pretty much an ineffective regulation, particularly for the larger banks,” she says. “But I suppose it is another way of saying we don’t want you to create any bubble in the Turkish economy, through excessive lending or similar steps.

In the note Fitch explains how the new system works:

The new policy tool, effective from Q413, will require banks with leverage ratios below 3.5% to hold additional reserves, ranging from one to two percentage points. The threshold will increase up to 4% in Q414 and to 5% in Q415. The leverage ratios of Fitch-rated banks [the agency rates 30 of Turkey's bigger banks] are mostly in the 7%-9% range, comfortably above the new requirement.

Fitch notes that loan growth slowed to an annualised 15 per cent for the first nine months of last year; it expects the level this year to be “somewhat higher” but still below 20 per cent, partly because of the continued inflow of foreign funds. It also expects a still respectable but far from overheated 3.8 per cent rate of GDP growth for 2013.

As the agency acknowledges, risks remain for the Turkish economy. Even top Turkish officials recognise that the current account deficit may yet widen once more once domestic demand revives and extraordinary exports such as gold sales to Iran fade away. The country remains heavily reliant on foreign portfolio capital. Against all of this the new rules may not count for all that much. Dow cautions: “Even if sector lending grew by 20 per cent it would be nowhere near these triggers.”

But all the same the rules’ favourable reception seems to show that these are rather kinder times for Turkey’s central bank and its chief.
