A significant trend in cybersecurity breaches is the shift from targeting endpoints to hijacking user identities. This evolution marks a significant change in attack vectors, emphasizing the need for robust Identity Threat Detection and Response (ITDR). The presentation will dig into the dynamics of this trend, explaining the mechanisms through which attackers infiltrate systems by exploiting identity vulnerabilities instead of traditional hardware or software loopholes.

In response to the increasing focus on identity-based threats, there has been a paradigm shift in organizational structures and workflows. Identity & Access Management (IAM) teams are no longer siloed entities; they are increasingly integrated with Security Operations Centers (SOC). This presentation will explore the multifaceted implications of this integration. Attendees will gain insight into how the fusion of IAM and SOC functions is reshaping security strategies, fostering a more resilient, proactive defense against identity-based attacks.

Topics covered will include the evolution of ITDR tools and techniques, the role of artificial intelligence in predicting and mitigating identity threats, and the critical importance of fostering a culture of security awareness throughout the organization.
