How are Cybercriminals still Compromising Identity and Breaching Organizations after all These Years?
The role of identity continues to be in high focus for defenders and attackers alike. While Identity and Access Management systems have improved greatly with the increased usage of MFA, PAMs, federated identity, AD & Azure AD, and detection and response systems such as EDR, SIEMs and XDR, successful, massive breaches leveraging identity still are occurring regularly. Why? How? In many organizations there are major vulnerability and detection gaps between primarily preventive IAM controls...
