There once was a time not all that long ago when security teams could plead ignorant to IT security risks, with minimal possible consequence in terms of any significant damage coming to the company. Those days are long gone. We’ve reached an era where the "I see nothing" perspective no longer works for network security. In today’s era of advanced cyberattacks, information security is too important an element of business success to dismiss. In fact, ignorance of information security matters is prohibitively costly, as regulators can use it to justify the imposition of fines. Take GDPR’s penalty scheme, for example. Is ignorance of digital security worth €20 million or 4 percent of an organization’s global annual revenue? That’s just one data protection standard -- others such as Australia’s Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme and the NY Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) Cybersecurity Requirements for Financial … [Read more...] about Stop focusing your information security efforts on the wrong things!

In a technology-reliant workplace, usernames and passwords are abundant — and the bane of many users’ existence. With numerous programs and software applications to command, countless logins impede employee performance, cost money, waste time, and lead to security risks when staff resort to simple passwords. Single sign-on (SSO) allows these technology-dependent users to log in with one set of credentials for multiple applications as opposed to remembering a multitude of various logins. The average person used just 6.5 passwords in 2007. In 2016, a survey conducted by Intel Security determined the average has risen to 27 online logins per person, and though the survey didn’t ask, it’s suspected that the number of passwords is slightly less but oversimplified for easier remembering. According to the same survey, 37% of users forget a password at least once a week. With an average of 27 logins per person, forgetfulness isn’t a surprise, but it is an abused … [Read more...] about How SSO Software Works and Why Single Sign-On Is Important
