Response to 7 Modern-Day Cybersecurity Realities article
Really interesting read. To add - I think everyone in a company should be responsible for ensuring security, not just the security or tech people

Digital Identities are the most vulnerable attack vector
Great read, thanks!

I would add that cybersecurity pros need to embrace the importance of securing digital identities in their security strategies. As we've witnessed, digital identities (user names and passwords) are the most exploited attack vector  - with a valid set of credentials, criminals can just login to get access to critical resources and systems and do significant damage.

Modern approaches to identity security - the protection of human/machine identityes through technologies like dentity proofing, MFA, risk-based authentication -  and identity defined security - using a trusted identitiy to further secure transactions throughout the entire technology stack -  are important to addressing the cybersecurity realities we face today.
