A Brief Q&A on Identity

The intrepid Emanuela Giannetta (Marketing Manager for Oracle InfoSec in EMEA, and the voice behind @OracleSecurity) just did a brief Q&A session with me about my recent experience at Gartner IAM Summit in London and Oracle’s entitlement-centric approach to identity management. I had promised to give her some time during my London trip, but the

An Entitlement-Centric Approach to Security

Last week, I gave a well-received talk to a group of CxO and high-level IT managers on a new way to think about security built around entitlements.

The Debate over RBAC vs. Entitlement Management

The folks over at Securent are onto a good thing with the community driven blog they started called simply the Entitlement Management blog.
