CISO Viewpoint: Safely Scale Your Identity and Access Management Programs

CISO Viewpoint: Safely Scale Your Identity and Access Management Programs

December 7, 2016 | Shelley Boose

We recently interviewed Shawn Irving, VP and CISO, Michael’s Stores to learn what made him decide to get serious about managing his cryptographic risk posture. His response can be summed up in a single phrase: next-generation identity and access management.

The Michael’s Stores CISO recommends identity and access management that scales easily. This can be a problem for some organizations. He ventures that, “most organizations fail to consider the importance of keys and certificates.” At a minimum, you should know how your keys and certificates are issued, how long they are good for and whether they have been compromised.

Watch the video below to see what motivated CISO Shawn Irving to be hyper vigilant about keys and certificates.
