In the latest weekly update, Jeremy Grant of Venable joins three ISMG editors to discuss why the U.S. government is taking a back seat on digital identity issues, the risks of artificial intelligence, and takeaways from the U.S. Cyber Safety Review Board's recent report on cybercrime group Lapsus$.
The shift from traditional malware-led attacks to identity-based attacks in the realm of cybersecurity has become more prominent than ever. Attackers continuously adapt their tactics, seek the path of least resistance and focus on exploiting vulnerabilities in identity-related weaknesses.
In today's evolving digital landscape, application security is crucial. That’s why it is increasingly important to normalize the use of two-factor authentication in the developer community to the point that it is "effectively ubiquitous," said John Swanson, director of security strategy at GitHub.
Government agencies are recognizing that the seven pillars of zero trust, as outlined by U.S. federal agencies such as CISA and the DOD, should be strategically applied across various elements, including data and identity management, said Manuel Acosta, senior director and security analyst, Gartner.
The crazy fluctuations in the stock market over the past 14 months can drive short-term thinking for publicly traded firms, said CEO Fran Rosch. A proposed $2.3 billion buy by Thoma Bravo would allow ForgeRock to think about the best long-term investments and opportunities in the identity market.

The most critical variable in today’s cyber threats is – people. This year, the 2023 Human Factor report takes an in depth look at new...

In today’s Digital World, customers expect to keep them and their digital transactions safe. Additionally identifying the person attempting to access your...
The International Rescue Committee has identified new processes and ways to safeguard information in the midst of rapid digital transformation, according to CISO JT Jacoby. The IRC went from having multi-factor authentication deployed on just 1,500 devices in November to more than 10,000 today.
Humans continue to reuse simple passwords that criminals can access, and passwordless continues to be the way forward. Jeff Shiner, CEO of 1Password, said we're making progress toward the future of authentication - passkeys - and discussed when, why and how to adopt them.
In the online world, knowing and trusting who you are interacting with has been a problem for decades. When it comes to assessing the state of identity verification, "we certainly have a lot of problems to address," according to identity expert Jeremy Grant of Venable.
