Will lockdown change our perception of remote working?
The world we live in is currently undergoing a seismic change. Previous patterns of working and living have been forcibly modified. One of the most foundational of these movements are the instructions to stay at home, which are in place for many countries across the world: employees, no matter their industry or profession, have had to come to grips with remote working for long periods of time. By Mike Kiser, Senior Identity Strategist, SailPoint

Taking a zero-trust approach to security
For many organisations, zero trust security has reached the top of the CISO agenda. While the zero-trust model has been around for a few years, it has rapidly gained momentum in recent times. 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.

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.

Board games not only allow us to enjoy time with friends and family, but they transport us to new places and ...
