Shadow IT

Definition(s)

  • Projects, devices, or software that are used by employees without the control, permission, or even the awareness of the organization’s information technology program. Shadow IT is related to BYOD (bring your own device), but shadow IT implies an ungoverned use of technology, and BYOD may have limited or even deep controls.  1
