CNBC Squawk Alley: Robert Herjavec on the Twitter Hack and Importance of Identity Security
July 17, 2020
Robert Herjavec, CEO & Founder of Herjavec Group, appeared on CNBC's Squawk Alley to discuss the recent "coordinated social engineering attack" that led to the compromise of several high-profile Twitter accounts. Robert also addresses the correlation between social engineering attack and the rise of remote work.
"Our team at Herjavec Group is seeing a growth in phishing as we've never seen before. Phishing preys on people that have insecurity with their passwords or are working from home. The problem today is how organizations can trust if you are who you say you are. So one of the fastest-growing areas of cybersecurity is Identity."
Identity security ensures that the right people have access to the right data and tools at the right time. Robert emphasizes the value of Identity and Access Management, saying, "In the new world, proving who you are online will become critical to the future."
With this belief in mind, Herjavec Group recently acquired Securience, an award-winning Identity Management firm based in the UK, in order to grow and enhance our Identity delivery. You can read more about the acquisition here.
