This paper discusses how information security function in enterprises must engage with business users and stakeholders to ensure innovation and adoption of digital transformation.
The promises of the digital new world is inextricably locked with cloud computing technologies.
Cloud computing technology is central to the converging interconnecting forces of collaboration, mobility, BYOD, IoT and social enterprise.
The information/data security and entitlements of users of these services and apps is bound to their identities and the contexts within which they may partake in this ecosystem.
Traditional security models, information governance, identity management and role based access control don’t quite cut the mustard.
However, new technologies are yet to be tested both commercially and functionally.
The potential benefits to the enterprise such as seamless collaboration, agility and efficiency are too rewarding to ignore. The security industry must help organisations balance the risks and rewards.
