TEC37 Security Series E07: 5 Pillars of Identity and Access Management

Identity and access management (IAM) is a balancing act. On the one hand, organizations need to mature their capabilities as corporate assets increasingly live outside the traditional security perimeter.

Join host Robb Boyd as he speaks with WWT’s Mike Wampler, Principal Security Consultant, and Maafu Shabaz, Principal Consultant. They’ll discuss how organizations can adopt identity principles and practices to drive a cohesive, strategic approach to IAM.
