2021 Trends in Securing Digital Identities: A Survey of IT Security and Identity Professionals
In the past two years, the world experienced a significant shift in how many people work and transact business online. Digital identities used to connect remote workers suddenly became an even greater security target for attackers. Almost overnight, workplace trends from the last several years collided to create a new landscape for access and authentication, as cloud adoption, telecommuting, and the use of personal devices all spiked. Many organizations reacted to their new reality by increasingly focusing on identity as a core element of security to reduce risk, contain costs, and increase productivity.
In this report, the Identity Defined Security Alliance (IDSA) examined the impact that the events of 2020 have had on identity and access management in the enterprise and the implementation of identity-focused security strategies. Sponsored by the IDSA, the report is based on an online survey conducted by Dimensional Research. More than 500 security and identity professionals from the United States who worked at companies with more than 1,000 employees participated in the survey.
Read this report from IDSA to understand the present and future of IAM, Zero Trust and the CISO’s role in moving enterprises to a more secure approach to digital identities.
