As technology accelerates at near-exponential rates, invariably bound up with the internet and big data, security considerations explode in accordance with this growth. A very large part of these security concerns is around ‘identity’.
PwC’s recent Global Economic Crime and Fraud Survey found that of 1,296 executives surveyed across 53 countries and regions, 51% of organisations said they had experienced fraud in the previous two years - the highest level in PWC’s 20 years of research.
We interviewed Linda Siegert, the Senior Director of Global Procurement for SailPoint Technologies, to find out how they man the digital barricades, and leverage culture in procurement to influence the future.
SailPoint is the leading provider of identity security for the modern enterprise. They help organisations discover, manage and secure all identities across all environments.
As Senior Director of Global Procurement, Siegert began her career in accounting and quickly found that while she was good at the numbers, she more enjoyed the working relationships and the stories that the numbers could actually tell. So she transitioned into an HR role and moved into HR leadership, which further solidified how much she enjoyed empowering people for success, she says.
