Identity has been always an ambiguous term. Identities exist in a sociocultural and organizational context and in technical ones. We have Digital Identities and eIDs and not only do individuals have identities but so do organizations and non-humans, especially in technical contexts.
Identities had been always under threat, starting with theft of individuals’ identities and credentials in the physical world, such as credit cards and passports. However, these threats have not been on a large scale. We all know that this has changed dramatically with the digitization of everyone and everything. Social engineering, phishing emails, buying credentials in the dark web have become a serious threat to businesses and individuals. These threats have reached new heights with the numerous attacks on identity infrastructures, be it corporate directories or government eID infrastructure.
In this panel, we will explore the identity threats to individuals and organizations, how they are managed, and how identity security can be achieved from a prevention, detection, and management perspective.
