  1. The Identity Threat Detection and Response Lifecycle

    Identity pros have long understood that identity is the new security perimeter. Identity systems like Active Directory (AD)—the primary identity store in use today—are primary targets for cyberattacks. By gaining access to AD, attackers can eventually grab the types of elevated privileges necessary to steal company and user data and intellectual property and to lock…

  2. Managing Access as You Manage Identity

    Identity management and access management are close cousins in the cyber family, but despite their similarities, they have very different roles to play in protecting data.

  7. Identity Security and Artificial Intelligence

    Mention ‘Artificial Intelligence (AI)’ or ‘Machine Learning (ML)’ in conversation, and thoughts immediately jump to images of time-traveling cyborgs, global nuclear war simulations, and pod bay doors. While these front-of-mind examples make for good entertainment, they will (hopefully) stay in the realm of mostly-fiction. The reality is that artificial intelligence, and its subgenre machine learning,…
