You know that uncomfortable feeling in the pit of your stomach when you didn’t study for the test and you think you’ll get a failing grade? You stare blankly at the test questions and feel completely lost and adrift. It’s like having a conversation with a colleague who casually drops a term or acronym related to the Internet of Things (IoT), and you suddenly find yourself on unfamiliar ground.

Earlier this year, the ForgeRock Communications team came to me with the idea of doing a podcast. There are other Digital Identity centric podcasts already out there, so I wanted to figure out a way to make this one different and engaging. It starts with my co-host Fraser Wallace. We often joke that Fraser is the face of ForgeRock - he seems to be everywhere! When he’s not on stage hosting Identity Live, he’s behind the camera producing our awesome video content.

Many of us start our day by logging in to a desktop. However, none of us think that this seemingly inane activity is the sole tool protecting crucial corporate information. Employees' workstations are a prime target for malicious actors for apparent reasons – any unauthorized access to a company laptop or desktop can immediately put sensitive data at risk and can easily cause a chain reaction with devastating consequences.

Businesses love stability. Yes, they love profits too, but those come when markets are consistent. Unfortunately, the world doesn’t always work this way – things change, markets are volatile, and you must know the risks in trying to stay on a straight path across a moving landscape. Businesses that survive (and thrive) have one thing in common: the ability to be nimble.

The Fourth of July is just around the corner and many Americans are looking to celebrate their holiday with family and friends. “Grillin’ and chillin,’’ as it’s come to be known, is an industry. But what if the prices of meat spiked overnight or, worse still, if there was no meat available on supermarket shelves? And what if consumers learned that this disruption could have been prevented if meat producers had secured their supply chains with modern technology?

Welcome back to another episode of ForgeTalks. This week I met with ForgeRock Senior Director for Product Marketing, Tim Bedard, to discuss how organizations can address their identity governance fatigue.

In today's digital era, the insurance industry faces growing pressure on two fronts. First, firms must meet rising consumer expectations for a more modern, seamless, and convenient way of doing business. This includes unified access across products, a faster claims process, and greater transparency about data security and privacy. Second, established insurers must keep pace with innovations introduced by "insurtechs," including more personalized products, usage-based coverage, increased automation, and the ability to collect and analyze greater volumes of data more quickly.

Legacy Directory solutions were not designed to handle the growing amount of data we see today and, with the introduction of cloud and big data, they are struggling to keep up with demands.
