Centrify’s recent research revealed the colossal gap that often exists between CEOs and their enterprise’s IT departments. One of their most standout findings is that CEOs that are aware of cybersecurity risks incorrectly believe that malware is the greatest threat to their business. Therefore, they put the majority of their cybersecurity budgets (assuming they have one) into anti-malware software.
They’re wrong. The big threat to enterprises is identity—stolen credentials, insider threats, and poor access management. Identity and Access Management is where budgets need the most focus.
