Addressing the identity verification gap

Over 80 percent of data breaches reported since the beginning of the COVID-19 lockdown have been due to stolen or brute-forced credentials, according to a Verizon Business study. The rushed adoption of SaaS solutions by many organizations without due consideration of security controls has contributed substantially to this.

While these facts paint a scary picture of data breaches since the pandemic began, poor password practices and the security incidents that result from them have been prevalent long before COVID-19. It's high time organizations bridge the identity verification gap caused by a lack of vigilance.

Analyzing current trends in cyberattacks

Passwords are still the go-to option for authentication, due to familiarity and ease of use. However, passwords are not enough to secure IT resources, as even the strongest password can be inadvertently exposed to hackers.

In a credential stuffing attack, hackers use hundreds of credentials obtained from previous data breaches to attempt to access password-protected resources. They automate the login requests and are able to try numerous possible combinations within a limited time. Phishing attacks involve tricking the user into sharing their credentials using illegitimate emails or links.

Neither of these attacks can be prevented using passwords alone, no matter how complex they are. On top of this, password attacks like brute-force attacks are easy to carry out and are still fairly successful. This highlights that organizations need to take their identity verification methods seriously.

Size doesn't matter

A common belief among small and medium-sized businesses is that they are not worthy targets for password attacks, as they don't have much to offer. But this can't be any further from the truth. A Ponemon Institute report stated that 70 percent of employees working in small and medium-sized businesses had their passwords lost or stolen in 2019. This means that irrespective of the size or sector of your organization, IT security is a pressing issue that needs to be addressed.
