Despite spending tens of billions of dollars on cybersecurity, there’s been no shortage of headlines about massive security breaches. But while most security companies focus on how the breach happened, they’re missing a critical part of the story. They’re not talking about what’s being targeted in order to get to the data. The fact is, most breaches ultimately leverage compromised identities, stolen passwords or privileged access. Access that’s essential to the modern boundaryless enterprise and to the way work gets done today. So, it stands to reason that when it comes to breaches, all roads lead to identity.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, protect and empower all EU citizens’ data privacy, and reshape the way organizations across the region (and the globe) approach data privacy.
In the following pages, we examine the role technology solutions from the areas listed above play in GDPR compliance. More importantly, we explain how these solutions can work together to help enable organizations to continually monitor for compliance.
In our 41-criteria evaluation of IDaaS providers, we identified the seven most significant ones — Centrify, Gemalto, Microsoft, Okta, OneLogin, Oracle, and Ping Identity — and researched, analyzed, and scored them.
A recent HSB survey found that nearly half of the data breaches in 2017 were caused by a third-party vendor or contractor. As organizations invest in creating or strengthening vendor risk management (VRM) programs, they must ensure they are leveraging technology-enabled automation to keep up with an ever-growing vendor base, as well as the speed at which cyber threats emerge.
In this Ebook, we’ll explore those traditional programs and identify the areas where they fall short. We’ll discuss what it takes to create a VRM program that’s ready and able to stand up to the current state of affairs.
BitSight Security Ratings for Vendor Risk Management offers timely, data-driven insights into any organization’s security performance by continuously analyzing and monitoring information on compromised systems, security diligence, user behavior, and data breaches.
Good corporate governance—which can’t be legislated—means you have an obligation to understand vendor risk and to actively take steps to mitigate the risk and its impact on your business.
