Virtual Onboarding with MS Entra Verified ID

As the world becomes more interconnected, organizations are expanding their network of digital relationships.This shift has brought about an influx of diverse third parties, including contractors, vendors, partners, affiliates, students, freelancers, and onboarding new hire employees. While these relationships provide valuable business support, managing their access to enterprise assets can be a daunting task that increases the risk of an insider security breach. Here a few research statistics on insider threats:

  • Insider threats cause 60% of data breaches
  • The number of insider-caused cybersecurity incidents increased by 47% since 2018
  • The average annual cost of insider threats has skyrocketed to $11.45 million
  • Negligent employees or contractors cause 62% of insider incidents
  • 61% of companies have had an insider attack in the past year

Insider threat is only part of the problem. Forrester research estimates that it takes somewhere between 2 to 34 weeks approximately to onboard people through traditional manual procedures.
Traditional verification processes to onboard new people are slow, expensive, and prone to errors that increase risk. With so many different types of non-employees to track, organizations are struggling to keep up with the pace of change. How can businesses improve protection against insider threats and simplify the verification onboarding process at the same time?

Identity-first Orchestration is the key to HR onboarding automation and security.
