When it comes to identity and access management (#IAM) there’s hardly any real difference between what IT do and what your building security team get up to.
Both create and distribute digital credentials.
Where there is a world of difference is in the governance and operation of IAM.
Getting a replacement ‘card’ to enter the building has been a completely different process from recovering your access to IT systems.
But…as the physical card gives way to a mobile credential, and that credential can be embedded in an app like LOOP from any2any.co (full disclosure, I sell this stuff), then the trust models begin to look a lot like domain trust in the IT world.
I’m glad to see established security companies like LEGIC position themselves as trusted credential providers. It makes my job of bridging the IT and OT worlds a lot easier.
