Sébastien FAIVRE, CTO of Brainwave GRC:

 

« We are living intense moments, digital transformation is changing drastically the cybersecurity’s landscape and profession: infrastructures decompartmentalized, cloud infrastructures managed by third parties, multicanal user’s access, devops applications and micro-services, exploding volume of processed data, …

This includes for the CISO to become agile and to support these challenges: reinforcement of its relations with the legal department in order to manage the cloud provider’s contractual clauses, risk analysis methods deployment in the dedicated departments to help them measuring impacts of their decisions, …

Finally, the only constant in this new landscape is the “identity” because whatever the means and techniques, managing people and their access rights to the different systems, applications, and data remains companies’ responsibility.

The main goal of solutions such as Brainwave is to help CISO to enlighten Identity’s access as a real “lighthouse” in the mids of this digital storm, to make it possible to stay on course while reconciling security and change management towards the “all digital”.
