Organizations often have incomplete views of who is accessing what, when, where and how across multiple applications and systems. Understanding a user and their behavior is critical to understanding corporate security risk. In an interview in Security Weekly's Business Security Weekly July 22 podcast, Preempt CEO Ajit Sancheti explains why organizations need to secure identity with conditional access, which allows security teams to take the appropriate remediation steps based on the level of risk.


Ajit's conversation with Matt Alderman, CEO of Security Weekly, and Paul Asadoorian, CEO of Countermeasures, goes into  how organizations need to change the roles of the IT, Security, and DevOps teams to address the growing security concerns and how identity data is critical to understanding the threat landscape.

  • Why identity is now a critical part of the security team and which identity data sources have better fidelity than others
