Financial Services: AI-Driven Identity Security Lowers RiskSailPoint's Jeff Purrington on Maturing and Strengthening Identity Protection
The threat landscape has changed for financial services entities - and so has the regulatory landscape. Jeff Purrington of SailPoint described how many financial services breaches are identity- and third-party related, the challenges in meeting compliance requirements, and how a centralized AI-driven identity security solution can help.
In an interview with Information Security Media Group, Purrington discusses:
- How providing provisioning access manually wastes time;
- How to reduce third-party risk and protect sensitive PII data;
- Why an AI-driven identity solution can reduce the risk and increase efficiencies.
Purrington focuses on financial services/insurance verticals. He has 25 years of experience in information security and has worked on identity and access governance. He has led security teams for large ERP implementation teams designing security and controls, built threat and vulnerability programs and PCI and HIPAA compliance programs, and led several IT audit teams for Fortune 100 and 500 companies.
