Organizations are still grappling with identity-related incidents, with an alarming 90% reporting one in the last 12 months, a 6% increase from last year, according to The Identity Defined Security Alliance (IDSA).
Protecting digital identities
As identities continue to significantly grow, identity stakeholders are faced with an increasing number of barriers without the needed support from leadership. A staggering 49% report that their leadership teams understand identity and security risks and proactively invest in protection before suffering an incident, while 29% only engage and support after an incident.
“As cloud adoption, remote work, mobile device usage, and third-party relationships drive up the number of identities, more and more organizations are suffering from identity-related incidents,” said Jeff Reich, Executive Director, IDSA.
