Why “Identity Quotient,” you may ask? The name reflects the mission of the blog, which is to take the measure of all things identity – organizational challenges, technology news, industry trends, evolving business requirements, etc. In a space as rapidly evolving as this one, we’re aiming to sort through a variety of business and technical issues, and offer up our collective thoughts and advice.
We hope to use this blog to share our collective knowledge on identity governance, share real-world advice from Global 1000 companies about combining business risk principles and policies with ongoing oversight to monitor user access privileges.
Our goal is to facilitate a conversation around identity governance. We’ll publish all comments, but reserve the right to delete ones containing profanity or that are off topic. You can also email us your feedback at blog [at] sailpoint [dot] com.
