Robert Vamosi, Senior Product Marketing Manager, & Val Dobrushkin, Head of Security Compliance, ForgeRock
In 2018, cybercriminals exposed 2.8 billion consumer data records, costing U.S. organizations over $654 billion according to a new report from ForgeRock. The report covers data breaches affecting customer data only from January 1, 2018 through March 31, 2019. The report can be found in the attachment section of this webinar. While these are a mix of sensitive and non-sensitive sets of data, both are valuable to a criminal who can use a name, birth date, and social security number, along with someone’s email in order to build a synthetic identity used to impersonate someone online. Given this, Personal Identifiable Information (PII) was the leading type of data breach in 2018, at 97 percent. And among cybercriminals, the most frequent attack method used in 2018 was unauthorized access, comprising 34 percent of all data breaches.
In this webinar, ForgeRock's Robert Vamosi, Senior Product Marketing Manager, and Val Dobrushkin, Head of Security Compliance, will discuss ways in which identity management can help mitigate these types of attacks.
What you can do:
•Take advantage of the cloud – Everything is moving to the cloud and so should identity. This includes configurations of infrastructure as a service, platform as a service, and ID as a service
•Increase trust and reduce fraud – The ability to safely enable sensitive transactions with customers and partners by requiring and enforcing higher levels of security and assurance. Conforming with privacy rules and regulations are also an important component of building trust
•Leverage existing IAM investments – Few organizations can rip and replace everything. Look instead at augmenting existing investments with modern advanced capabilities
