Identity Management Day
Identity Management Day aims to educate business leaders, IT decision makers, and the public about the importance of managing and securing digital identities.
Identity Management Day raises awareness about the dangers of casually or improperly managing and securing digital identities by sharing best practices, and inspiring individuals and organizations to act. This annual awareness activity is founded by the Identity Defined Security Alliance and supported by the National Cybersecurity Alliance.
Cybersecurity incidents involving compromised credentials continue to be the most common cause of a data breach for enterprises, and account takeover for individuals. Securing digital identities remains one of the most urgent tasks facing the digital ecosystem.
Quanterion Solutions is a Identity Management Day Champion
To support these initiatives, Quanterion Solutions is a registered Identity Management Day Champion and will be providing resources and tips for protecting digital identities.
“Small businesses often struggle to develop and implement a plan for securing their identities due to a lack of time and resources,” said John Reade, Information Systems Director at Quanterion Solutions. “A strategy for securing digital identities may involve identification of the need; planning, developing, testing and implementing the response; and finally, monitoring and maintaining the procedures and any software used. Those steps can become overwhelming for small businesses with staff shortages, small budgets or limited time. However, securing identities can be tackled one project at a time.”
Quanterion Solutions will be helping small organizations fill in the gaps with identity management education and resources.
“Setting up multi-factor authentication, using password managers, creating processes for identity data management, and scheduling automatic updates are all a great place to start,” Reade said.
