We are less than two weeks away from RSA Conference, the world's largest security event! This year's theme - The Power of Opportunity - emphasizes "unity." Clever, right? We think so. Not only is it a great time to call for unity in cybersecurity among vendors and practitioners, but also end users. Every day we're on the hook to be more vigilant in the fight to protect our identities, privacy, data and businesses. To win, we have to be united and this year's conference provides many opportunities to help us get there.
According to the 2016 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, 63% of confirmed data breaches leveraged weak, default, or stolen passwords. This is why identity is the most consequential attack vector we must protect today. We can no longer rely on yesterday's technology and approaches. Use the RSA Conference to focus on identity and access management. Maximize conference opportunities to learn how others are reimagining their identity strategy to meet the needs of the modern workforce. Here are some fantastic events and sessions that will help you to do just that:
