Assessing The Risk of Compromised Credentials to The Enterprise
Businesses today face an abundance of organizational risk. These come in the form of creating the business model itself, dealing with third parties, managing vendors and partners, monitoring internal and external fiscal fraud, exercising premise security and the like. In the 21st century, no greater risk is posed to the enterprise than that of risk to the technology infrastructure in the form of cybersecurity risk. Within the cybersecurity risk itself, there are many different risks. In this paper, we will focus on Identity Threat Management and the risk of compromised credentials, which try to answer two key questions: “How at risk are my users” and “How at risk is my organization to the risk of compromised credentials.”
CYBERSECURITY RISK & IDENTITY THREAT MANAGEMENT
Because technology now has broad and pervasive impact on the successful operation of the business, comprehensive and accurate assessment and mitigation of cybersecurity risk is absolutely essential and covers many areas of technology. Perhaps no area of cybersecurity risk is more significant than that of Identity Threat Management as businesses ultimately harness the work of individuals who assume electronic identities within the technology infrastructure to drive the business forward. Threats to identities within the enterprise therefore are ever evolving as identities provide access to business information in the form of access to critical applications and their associated data.
