If we’re being honest, the sweeping change that is supposedly transforming our workplace, our lives, and our society through the dissemination of smaller, more mobile, more connected devices has hit a stone wall... The problem is identity. While more than 9 of 10 executives say they’re afraid of how cloud architectures will impact security, according to a poll our Hailey McKeefry cited last week, the truth is that we are reluctant to cross that line and enter the era where we trust our online identity to any outside institution. I’ve been told that online identity is a social issue, not a business issue. This is the crux of our denial: that who we are in public and how we work in business are not just separate issues but separate identities.
