While cybersecurity is broad in both its context and application, information security is singularly focused on the protection of data. In practice however, most organizations repeatedly use the same tools, controls, strategies, mindset, etc., to defend against cyber-attacks as they do to protect their data. The unfortunate reality is that most tools are designed fundamentally to address cybersecurity, and while these tools may to some degree help with information security, it’s really not their raison d’être.
In this session, Danielle Weiss will argue the importance of segregating IAM controls from information security mechanisms and why doing so can enhance your security posture.
