Mike Kiser has held a panoply of industry positions over the past 20 years—from Security Strategist to Security Analyst to Security Architect. He has designed, directed, and advised on large-scale security deployments for a global clientele. He is currently in a long-term relationship with fine haberdashery, is a chronic chronoptimist, and delights in needlessly convoluted verbiage. He has been a speaker on topics ranging from identity governance to security analytics, network security, ethics in technology, and various related privacy issues, and is the co-host of a podcast illuminating all things identity. He warmly embraces the notion that security is more of a state of mind than a destination.
