Lunch + Learn: Closing the Widest Attack Vector: Comprehensive Identity Management

At DEF CON 2017, 84% of Black Hats indicated that social engineering is an attack method they often use. Today, nearly 80% of breaches include some form of credential or identity-based attack. Proper authentication and Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) is much harder to achieve due to the rampant nature of social engineering and poor security practices. We will look at a history of recent attack vectors, demonstrate the wide hole left for attackers by current identity management practices, and discuss some best practices to retake the assurance of confidentiality and integrity, reducing risk to the organization.
