Identity security posture management explained

The two main issues that compromise an organization’s identity security posture are identity misconfigurations and identity blind spots

Threat actors may exploit identity blind spots, which are hazards that are missed or not kept an eye on by an organization’s current identification controls

The necessity of protecting identities is supported by both research and actual occurrences in which an attacker’s first point of access was a compromised identity

The 2024 research revealed a 71% yearly rise in legitimate identities used in cyberattacks

Businesses are just as likely to experience a phishing attack as they are to have a legitimate identity used in a cyberattack

The January 2024 disclosure of the Midnight Blizzard attack is a noteworthy instance of an identity-based attack that occurred recently

Inadvertent omissions or gaps in session management can result in a situation where MFA is not enforced when it is not configured appropriately
