Three Identities Walk into a Bar…

Play Download media
When you think of identity and access management (IAM), what comes to mind? For guest Bert Vanspauwen, it's the metaphor of a bar. Before ordering a drink, you need to prove to the bartender that you're of age. Rarely do you see someone walk up to the bar with their driver's license, social security, and passport in hand—why give your full identity when the only thing between you and a drink is your age?  In his experience working with a European team of IAM experts at IBM Security, Bert sees questions around distributed identity arising in tandem with digital transformation: "[The problem is] how can you as an identity stay in control of your data and only share the relevant pieces with the different service providers that you interact with." Bert joined co-hosts Pam Cobb and David Moulton to talk about addressing IAM challenges, the benefit of re-evaluating strategy around legacy identity programs and the cloud, and the impact on users and business goals. Pam and David wrap up the episode with their impressions of the temperature of the cybersecurity landscape after attending the industry conference RSA.
