Protecting against Identity Based Security Attacks

Identity is the front line in the battle against modern cyber threats.


Nearly 80% of cyberattacks leverage compromised credentials to gain access and evade detection.
These attacks often come in via unmanaged or rogue endpoints, legacy systems, supply chain vendors or other attack vectors that are outside the scope of endpoint-centric security controls.


A great presentation was enjoyed by members of IISF on November 3rd at our October Chapter Meeting on "Protection Against Identity based security attacks" delivered by Ross Penny from Crowdstrike.

Ross, one of CrowdStrike's Identity Protection experts, detailed to a full room, the history of Identity and Identity architecture and provided great insight into how to better protect Identity security.

These IISF Chapter Events are a great opportunity to keep abreast of hot topics and speak to experts in the field.
