Hybrid Identity Protection with Denis Ontiveros Merlo

Security architectures depend on identity, the “new security frontier”. Yet despite the investment in identity and attempts to promote a sustainable identity culture, significant security gaps and frictions still exist, given competing priorities and opinions on value. In this HIP podcast session, originally recorded at a Hybrid Identity Protection conference, I discuss with Denis Ontiveros Merlo, VP Developer & Identity Platforms at bp, the challenges of creating a culture sustainable and evolving identity.

Scaling Hybrid Identity Protection

Does the identity business design products that promote good user behavior? By using behavioral economics and heuristics – rules of thumb or mental shortcuts to make a quick decision – are we focusing on the wrong problems and reinforcing cognitive biases?

“We may have hundreds or even thousands of customers within the company,” he says. “Clearly the future is very federated or distributed.… Identity is the gateway.”

Scaling identity (and security) management to meet the needs of the modern IT enterprise requires the ability to scale. Yet biases when adopting technology can create what Denis calls “anti-patterns” that complicate our ability to implement operational identity best practices.

Listen for examples of these anti-patterns and how to improve the scalability of your security and identity management approach.
