Mike Kiser is insecure. He has been this way since birth, despite holding a panoply of industry positions over the past 20 years—from the Office of the CTO to Security Strategist to Security Analyst to Security Architect—that might imply otherwise. In spite of this, he has designed, directed, and advised on large-scale security deployments for a global clientele. He is currently in a long-term relationship with fine haberdashery, is a chronic chronoptimist (look it up), and delights in needlessly convoluted verbiage. He speaks regularly at events such as the European Identity Conference and the RSA Conference, is a member of several standards groups, and has presented identity-related research at Black Hat and Def Con. He is currently the Director of Strategy and Standards at SailPoint.
FIt’s a time-worn adage: “What goes up must come down.” This took on a new meaning last year. On February 3, 2022, SpaceX launched 49 Starlink satellites. A day later, they were hit by a geomagnetic storm. By February 8th, SpaceX reported that 40 of the original 49 would reenter the Earth’s atmosphere. These precious resources lasted less than a day, potentially adding to the growing problem of space junk.
Businesses should take note: with the rush to cloud adoption, today’s organizations have embraced the cloud’s potential for scale and speed. There are a few limits to growth in a cloud-based approach, including sensitive data and entitlements. Like space junk, sensitive data and entitlements in the cloud are orbiting enterprises at an alarming speed and volume. Like many of the floating objects in space, much of this data is abandoned, forgotten, and dangerous—inherently elevating risk. Taking cues from the global initiative to address the problem of space junk, this session will provide a strategy to expose, analyze, and mitigate this growing problem of sensitive data that is orbiting today’s enterprises.
