Cloud has a dirty little secret: While most say moving to cloud is inevitable, not everything today can or even should run in the cloud, says SecZetta's Richard Bird. He explains why hybrid approaches are here to stay and how security teams must respond, especially when it comes to identity.

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2022, Bird discusses:

  • Why hybrid approaches will continue indefinitely;
  • Why identity is the only control domain that doesn't use security language;
  • Advice for managing identity, given the ongoing hybrid reality.

A globally recognized personality in data privacy and identity-centric security, Bird is building a unique approach to solving the problem of all other identities - AoID - in the digital world. A former CIO, CISO and chief customer information officer, he is one of the few identity experts to have served as a practitioner, adviser and solution provider.
