An IAM strategy for remote workforces should ensure that key stakeholders are aligned in listing key applications, infrastructure is mapped and risk- and role-based authentication for measuring user risk profiles are applied, says UAE-based Mustapha Huneyd, director of customer security at Ericsson.

A strategy that uses "zero trust" models and is tightly integrating with a PAM strategy will prove beneficial, Huneyd says in a video interview with Information Security Media Group.

This interview was part of Information Security Media Group's recent Cybersecurity Virtual Summit: Middle East. Huneyd also offers insights on:

  • How to improve identity governance to provide appropriate user access;
  • Adopting an identity and data-centric cybersecurity model;
  • Building an IAM framework for a cloud strategy.

Before joining Ericsson, Huneyd was the global CISO of Ooredoo, a Qatar-based telecommunications firm. He has 23 years of cybersecurity, business continuity and risk management experience. He's a member of the Qatar National Cyber Security Strategy Committee and formerly led security teams in India, Southeast Asia, the GCC region and North Africa.
