SailPoint Gathers Identity Professionals in Sydney to Discuss the Power of Identity

SYDNEY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SailPoint,
the leader in identity management, today announced the launch of iD
Live, a new community event intended to bring leading identity
professionals together to discuss challenges in identity
governance
and the importance of putting identity at the heart of IT
security strategies. The first iD Live event is being held in Sydney,
Australia on March 23, 2017 and includes a keynote session lead by
SailPoint President and co-founder Kevin Cunningham, and Atul Sood,
General Manager Architecture for TAL.

“Having a clear understanding of identities and the access they have to
critical systems, applications and data is both incredibly important and
increasingly challenging for businesses like ours,” said Atul Sood,
General Manager Architecture for TAL. “As Australia’s leading life
insurer, the security of our customers’ information and data is of
utmost importance. With our own identity governance journey, we have
full visibility into who has access to what, and how they are using that
access, ensuring that our business and customer data is secure and
shifting into a much more proactive compliance
stance, as well. This has freed us up to focus on our ambition as a
company – protecting the lives of millions of Australians across the
country.”

Identity governance is even more critical to businesses in Australia
today given the recent passing of the Privacy Amendment (Notifiable
Data Breaches) Bill 2016
by the Office of the Australian Information
Commissioner (OAIC) which establishes a mandatory data breach
notification scheme in Australia. The amendment requires government
agencies and enterprises to notify individuals affected by a data
breach, improving transparency in the way that the public and private
sectors respond to serious data breaches. This bill not only helps to
protect the privacy of Australians across the country but also
underscores the need to better shore up IT security defenses for
Australian business and government entities, going forward.

“Emerging technologies like mobile
and cloud
have dissolved the network perimeter. As a result,
businesses have quickly realised that their cybersecurity strategy needs
an overhaul, and this problem is a truly global one today,” said Kevin
Cunningham, President and Co-Founder of SailPoint. “More often than not,
identity is the only thing linking the extended enterprise together
which is why a user-centric approach to enterprise security that puts
identity at the centre, is so crucial today. With identity in focus,
Australian enterprises can move their businesses forward confidently
with the assurance that the identities of their employees and customers
are secure.”
