After you have a look af the discussion on the wikipedia page, for
instance, you will start to know what are the security issues of having
skype in use in an organization.

These "serious issues" are due to the difficulty of filtering skype,
and a disgruntled person cans end secret files out thru skype file
transfer.

The same is true for any IM client with file transfer capability.
Skype per se, poses no risk, it is quite secure. It is capable
of being abused, just like anything else.
