Machine Identity is an area many Cybersecurity professionals have yet to embrace and address. Digital Certificates are still seen as an operational headache due to being unmanaged, expiring in an unplanned fashion, and causing operational disruption across an enterprise. More and more threats are surfacing as well recently, as criminals are seeing advantages in taking over machine identity as a method to conduct malicious activities. There needs to be a focus on continued education in this area and we need to get ahead of the growth already present with machine identities. It’s up to us to make a difference while we can.
