Hitachi ID argues that when it comes to cyber attacks that depend upon insiders access informing employees about cybersecurity is essential. According to Hitachi ID, 69% of respondents claimed to have increased the level of cybersecurity education offered to employees over the past twelve months.

A majority of them also claim that they've educated their employees on how to thwart the phishing attack (89 percent) Create secure passwords (86 percent) and to keep their passwords secure (95 95%).

The study finds that the majority of people are confident about their security infrastructure, mostly due to multi-factor authentication (82 percent) and single sign-on (80 percent) as well as the management of identity (74 percent) projects.

"As organizations continue to grow their businesses in an increasingly risky cybersecurity landscape, leaders need to deliver a frictionless environment that enables productivity while employing fundamental Zero Trust principles of trust nothing, verify everything," noted Nicholas Brown, CEO of Hitachi ID.

He also suggests that, while using Zero Trust is the gold security standard but it is essential to keep in mind the fact that "Zero Trust is a journey, not a destination - and it can take time."
