13 FebLaura Delivers Compelling Speech on IAM and Why It Should Be the First Line of Defense

Posted by OPS Marketing

In this talk to a room full of security professionals, OPS Chief Growth Officer Laura Chevalier described how Identity Access Management is really the first line of defense for the business world’s cybersecurity. By the year 2025, according to Gartner, 99% of cloud security failures will be the customer’s fault. 75% of those failures will occur due to poor IAM.

In a world, where so many are working remotely, 51% of all business-critical applications are accessed remotely daily. And even the acquisition of hardware is done remotely in the sense that it is shipped to the recipient with access information & passwords included on Sticky Notes or sent via text message. Over 57% of the time, in fact.

With financial gain or personal vendettas leading the charge as the motive behind breaches in system access, there is cause to gear up a strong defense against such attacks. A clear and cohesive strategy within the tool ecosystem with integration is key. Considerations include:

Provisioning Tools
Single Sign On (SSO)
Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)
Access Portal Services
