Identity Management Day: Why It Matters and How to Celebrate

Celebrate Identity Management Day by learning more about the latest practices, tools, and techniques to keep your data secure.
April 11, 2023

Beginning in 2021, Identity Management Day is an annual event celebrating the importance of identity management and data security. It’s a day to recognize the need for secure access control and user authentication and to encourage organizations to practice effective identity management in order to improve the security of their resources and data.

At Abnormal, we believe identity management is important year-round, but Identity Management Day serves as a good reminder to make sure you’re up to date on the latest security practices.

Why Identity Management Matters

Data breaches have become increasingly common in recent years, making it more important than ever for businesses to have adequate protections in place for their customers and employees. According to research conducted by the IDSA, 79% of organizations have experienced an identity-related security breach in the last two years, and 99% believe their identity-related breaches were preventable.

Raising awareness about identity management is important for any organization that values its security. Not only does it demonstrate a commitment to protecting customer data, but it also encourages employees to be mindful of online safety protocols when they are using business accounts or devices.

How You Can Celebrate Identity Management Day

Celebrating Identity Management Day is a great way for organizations to demonstrate their commitment to data security and show their dedication to implementing safe and secure authentication protocols. It also raises awareness and encourages employees to be mindful of online safety protocols when they are using business accounts or devices.

Here are a few ways you can make the most of the occasion:

  • Attend a Virtual Event: Identity Defined Security Alliance (IDSA) and National Cybersecurity Alliance host a free virtual event to inform organizations about the dangers of casually or improperly managing and securing digital identities by sharing industry-wide best practices and raising awareness. The event features a number of panels hosted by security experts who will provide their insights and guidance for organizations to ensure that the identities of their employees, machines, applications, and partners are all protected through keen security awareness and comprehensive technologies.

  • Host a Company-Wide Training Session: Educating your staff through a company-wide training session is a great way to celebrate Identity Management Day as it provides better understanding of the best practices, tools, and techniques that can be implemented by each employee. Participating in virtual panels or webinars related to identity management can also be beneficial; industry experts provide insight into the latest trends and strategies for improving data security protocols, plus networking with other professionals helps build knowledge and experience.

  • Spread the Word: Sharing content about Identity Management Day on social media platforms such as Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram is another good way to spread awareness. Searching for #IdentityManagementDay may also yield some insightful results from data security experts that you can pass along to your organization.
