    Folks,
    IAM, IDaaS and ICAM continue to be the linchpin of security.  We recognize that "Three A(s)" of Identity are important.  Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (Account Mgmt) are vital in securing data.  In this late 2020 report, the CSA examines and explains where Industry is, vis-a-vis Identity.
    A question to ask: How robust is your organization's Identity hygiene?  Where are you on the IAM maturity curve?

    Release Date: 11/19/2020

    The use of cloud services have continued to increase over the past decade. Particularly in the wake of the COVID-19 public health crisis, many enterprises digital transformations are on an accelerated track to enable employees to work from home. CSA surveyed these organizations to better understand how cloud services are being used during this transition and how organizations are securing their operations over the next 12 months.


    Goals of the study:

     • Determine the use and challenges of public cloud workloads today and 1 year from now
     • Understand cloud IAM challenges specifically human and machine identity challenges
     • Establish the anticipated methods of addressing cloud IAM challenges
     • Identify the teams and roles responsible for cloud IAM
