Are You Prepared for a Cyber-Incident?

According to the Ponemon Institute - cyber incidents that take over 30 days to contain cost $1m more than those contained within 30 days. However, less than 25% of organizations surveyed globally say that their organization has a coordinated incident response plan in place. In the UK, only 13% of businesses have an incident management process in place according to a government report. This appears to show a shocking lack of preparedness since it is when not if your organization will be the target of a cyber-attack. Last week on January 24th I attended a demonstration of IBM’s new...

Apr 02, 2019: The Foundation for GDPR Compliance and PII Protection: Understand Where Data Resides and Who Processes It

What many companies often fail to realize is that this data is no longer stored in specialized and properly secured silos such as databases - in fact, the vast majority of their business information is unstructured and distributed across multiple separate systems ranging from file servers to communications systems to cloud storage services. Without consistent access control in all these environments, organizations lose the ability to identify information owners, monitor access to sensitive data, and identify security and compliance issues such as excessive privileges or suspicious user...

Who's the Best Security Vendor of Them All?

This week I had an opportunity to visit the city of Tel Aviv, Israel to attend one of the Microsoft Ignite | The Tour events the company is organizing to bring the latest information about their new products and technologies closer to IT professionals around the world. Granted, the Tour includes other cities closer to home as well, but the one in Tel Aviv was supposed to have an especially strong focus on security and the weather in January is so warm, so here I was! I do have to confess however that the first day was somewhat boring– although I could imagine that around 2000...

Can Autonomous Improve Security Posture?

Last week I attended the Oracle Open World Europe 2019 in London. At this event Andrew Sutherland VP of technology told us that security was one of the main reasons why customers were choosing the Oracle autonomous database. This is interesting for two reasons firstly it shows that security is now top of mind amongst the buyers of IT systems and secondly that buyers have more faith in technology than their own efforts. The first of these reasons is not surprising. The number of large data breaches disclosed by organizations continues to grow and enterprise databases contain the most...

CCPA: GDPR as a Catalyst for Improving Data Protection Outside the EU

It wasn't too long ago that discussions and meetings on the subject of digitization and consumer identity access management (CIAM) in an international environment became more and more controversial when it came to privacy and the personal rights of customers, employees and users. Back then the regulations and legal requirements in Europe were difficult to communicate, and especially the former German data protection law has always been belittled as exaggerated or unrealistic. However, in the past three years, during which I have given many talks, workshops and advisory sessions on the...

Trends in Consumer Identity for 2019

2018 was a year of sweeping changes in Consumer Identity Management products and services. CIAM continues to be a fast-growing market.

BAIT and VAIT as Levers to Improving Security and Compliance (And Your IAM)

Usually, when we talk about special compliance and legal requirements in highly regulated industries, usually one immediately thinks of companies in the financial services sector, i.e. banks and insurance companies. This is obvious and certainly correct because these companies form the commercial basis of all economic activities. Although regulations and their obligations are often formulated on a relatively abstract level, they must be adapted over time to the changing business and technical circumstances. Sometimes they need to be made more concise, more actionable and more specific, to...
