In the latest issue of the Sun Identity Insights newsletter, Leslie Lambert,
VP and Chief Information Security Officer, Sun IT, provides an insightful article entitled, “The Growing Importance of Identity to Information Security.” Leslie writes the article from her perspective as CISO, “As chief information security officer for Sun IT, I’m interested in identity largely in terms of its role in keeping Sun’s information assets secure.”

She writes of the transition from a security model whose primary purpose was to keep unauthorized users out, to a state where “business models that rely on outsourcing and collaboration have turned ‘inside’ and ‘outside’ on end, and Sun’s security model has shifted from simply keeping the bad guys out to actually supporting innovative new ways of doing business.”

For further insight into how Leslie views the role of Identity Management in information security, you can listen to the recent Identity Management Buzz podcast where Leslie has a lively conversation with Don Bowen and Brandon Whichard about her responsibilities as the new Sun CISO, the wireless internet at Sun, JavaOne and the NBA playoffs.
