For the last decade, it’s been open season for cyber criminals as they developed ever more effective strategies and honed insider compromising techniques. At the same time, the thinking of those responsible for keeping the enterprise safe – the security industry, Chief Information Security Officers, the C-suite – have not kept up with the pace of change.
A continued focus on preventing entry through perimeter security and authentication, along with mandatory security training to prevent staff compromise, represents an imperfect understanding of how threats originate and proliferate. 82% of ransomware incidents are the result of either negligent or malicious insiders.
idax is pleased to announce a new strategic alliance with the Impact Team, a world-class digital transformation consultancy.
The idax analytics suite is uniquely built around people. Idax finds staff that have elevated risk from excessive access, and give management the tools they need to make well-informed decisions, tracking success through intuitive reports and manager feedback. This approach reflects changing Identity and Access Management priorities, moving away from process efficiency and towards effective risk management.
However, identification and remediation is only one part of the picture. Ongoing resilience to risk can only be truly realised if there is a fundamental change in organisational mindset and culture when it comes to managing risk. The Impact Team have a heritage of and expertise in delivering digital transformation for large organisations. This means that our partnership can offer real value to the way that you embed risk management and resilience initiatives into your working practices.
We’re extremely excited to address the need for better risk resilience by combining our consulting and transformation delivery experience with the industry-leading analytics and expertise brought by idax. Together, we’re able to address a really important and prescient need for organisational change in a completely new way.
Mark Rothwell-Brooks, CEO of the Impact Team
