The National Cyber Security Centre recently found that 23.2 million victim accounts worldwide used 123456 as the password, and many companies still provide full admin rights...
The Department of Defense did not effectively control access to the health information of high-profile personnel, says a new watchdog agency report, which hints that the findings also may indicate ineffective access control over other DoD employees' health records.
With more than 61% of breaches attributed to stolen passwords, a password manager can go a long way in helping enterprises enhance security, say Chandan Pani, CISO at Mindtree, and Lloyd Evans, identity lead, JAPAC, at LogMeIn.

From identity and access management to cloud migration and connected devices, retired RSA CEO Art Coviello looks beyond the pandemic and says, "It's going to be a Roaring '20s for technology." But he also foresees a potentially calamitous decade for security.
Today, many organizations rely on multiple cloud services with their end users regularly consuming dozens, or even hundreds, of different SaaS applications.
