It’s time to treat your organisation like your smartphone
Unlocking a phone with a touch of a finger or a facial glance has become so commonplace that 75% of smartphones purchased in 2019 were equipped with some form of biometric authentication. Replacing the traditional passcode, these newer forms of recognition add an extra layer of security, guaranteeing that the correct person is accessing the device and the private data it holds. By Ben Bulpett, EMEA Director at SailPoint

Taking a zero-trust approach to security

Its popularity is driven by the digitalisation of the workplace which has made the network perimeter more porous. By Darran Rolls, CTO, SailPoint
How to manage your password like a CISO
Over the past decade, we have done the absolute most when it comes to passwords. We have written love letters, pontificated on strategies, and even offered tips on how to teach your mother the tricks of the trade. And it makes sense that we have done so much when it comes to our numeric and unique character friends. Once a password is compromised, the flood gates are open.
How to play identity like a board game
Hobbies are meant to take us away from the day-to-day of our jobs. They are a way to pursue new knowledge or a new skill. Humans have been playing board games for at least 5,000 years. There are even a few games featured prominently on Egyptian hieroglyphics or etched into the base of Assyrian winged lions so that the sentries could play. Board games not only allow us to enjoy time with friends and family, but they transport us to new places and ...

GDPR created a single breach-notification regulation for the entire EU with the goal of protecting personal data of EU citiz...
Debunking myths surrounding identity governance
It’s no secret that technology has come in leaps and bounds since the invention of the personal computer in the 80s. In the 90s we saw the World Wide Web burst onto the scene, shortly followed by the arrival of the iPhone in the early 2000s. Today, as we approach 2020, we’re facing biotech, blockchain, and bots. With this technological evolution far from slowing down, enterprises across the globe now need to tackle the growing ch...
