Cybersecurity in 2017: Strengthening the weakest link

October 28th, 2016   |     |  smarter identity

2016 has been a huge year for cyber security news. It feels like every other week you read about a large Internet firm suffering a data breach of millions of records, sensitive political emails being released to the public, or even governments hacking each other.

It can be a bit scary to consider that this is happening to large organizations with plenty of resources to devote to cybersecurity - especially if your organization has far fewer resources.

No matter how robust your cybersecurity plan is, it is still only as strong as its weakest link. But the weakest link in your organization’s cyber security system may surprise you…

Often times the weakest links are your organization’s employees themselves. Whether it be employee error or carelessness, ghost employee accounts, or the unauthorized use of apps and sensitive data, your employees (even with the best intentions) pose the greatest threat to your company’s data security. And although you can never mitigate this risk completely, you can take steps to minimize the threat with an identity management solution.
