Everyone needs to have a security-first mindset for identity because as much as it is a defender's shield, it is also an attacker's target, said Rohit Ghai, CEO at RSA. In fact, identities are the most attacked part of enterprises, yet too little energy is spent on monitoring them.
Cybercrime has grown considerably in the last several years. The scope, velocity and variability of attacks have increased, as has the attack surface - and it's impossible for humans alone to understand, correlate, find the cause, analyze and fix it, said Bipul Sinha, co-founder and CEO of Rubrik.
