Being a security leader in today’s dynamic environment is a challenge. They are constantly fending off increasingly sophisticated attacks, usually with limited resources and minimal Board support. The attack surfaces are expanding as organizations support a remote workforce, adopt cloud strategies, and take on digital transformation initiatives. The consequences of a breach are shifting from reputational damage, which can indirectly impact profits, to significant financial penalties in the form of fines or ransomware payments.
The vast majority of data breaches making headlines are the result of a compromised credential. Capital One, SolarWinds, and Colonial Pipeline, to name a few. These breaches often involved poor identity security, such as weak or previously compromised passwords, not leveraging multi-factor authentication and single sign-on or leaving standing privileges open. According to the 2022 Trends in Securing Digital Identities report, 84% of organizations reported suffering an identity-related breach within the last year, and 96% believe they may have prevented or minimized security breaches if they had implemented specific identity-related security outcomes.
