Identity Security and How to Reduce Risk During M&A
Lori Diesen, financial services strategist, SailPoint

Banks, insurance and other financial services institutions are experiencing a growing number of mergers and acquisitions. This activity comes with an exponential rise in identities that need to be secured. Newly acquired companies often lack visibility into all their identities and may have overprovisioned access.

Securing identities must be a priority during mergers and acquisitions. SailPoint's Lori Diesen showcases the value of transitioning to a SaaS-based identity security solution to reduce risk during M&A activity.

In an interview with Information Security Media Group, Diesen discussed:

  • Identity access cyber and audit risks during M&A;
  • Identity security best practices during M&A;
  • The value of transitioning to a SaaS-based identity security solution;
  • Centralized visibilities into all identities - employees, machine and third parties;
  • The role AI can play in helping to automate access as users join, change roles or leave.
