Identity Management Cyber Security Threats
Traditional IT cyber security countermeasures are not adequate to protect against attacks in today's world. Consider for a moment, countermeasures can often trigger network compromises, denial of services, and security breaches themselves. Cyber security risks most likely come from penetrators who are:
- Disgruntled employees, contractors and insiders who damage systems and steal intellectual property.
- Terrorists seeking low cost, low risk and high gain hacking opportunities.
- Professional cyber thieves who steal and sell information.
- Adversarial nations or groups who use the Internet for cyber warfare, IP theft and civil disobedience.
Insiders usually possess legitimate reasons to misuse computer systems, extend their privileges, and impersonate other users. Outsiders use the Internet, remote access, and partner network tunnels to penetrate your network and even facilities. Attackers exploit vulnerabilities, wherever they exist, using a variety of techniques and tools to probe networks, publicize targets, stifle operations, gain business advantage and promote causes.
