A LOOK AT SC EVENTS
Organizations have long struggled to find objective ways to measure and compare performance, leaving many executives to trust metrics and data points that may not be painting the clearest picture of security posture. With increased oversight from boards and regulating bodies, it's more important than ever for security teams to be able to accurately portray their strengths and weaknesses in this crucial area.
Increased pressure to innovate, rapidly develop new applications, and adopt new technologies is increasing the security risk to business applications and systems. It is a very real and present risk. The number of security breaches reported is escalating - between 2013 and 2014 alone attacks grew by 120% - and the threat of an attack is more pertinent today than ever before.
Identity is critical to today's connected enterprise, underpinning all aspects of work life, from entering the office, accessing the corporate network to verifying and approving workflows and transactions.
