This episode I continue the Implementer Series with a conversation with Alisha Scott as we talk about her career in Identity and Access Management.
Alisha Scott has developed some of the largest and most secure Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions for nearly a decade. Directly from college, Alisha was selected into a government program to rapidly grow new identity solutions engineers and placed into a highly complex customer implementation pushing the products and standards to new lengths. Throughout this program, Alisha made a significant impact on the project and continued growing her knowledge base. Over the last seven years, Alisha has led the creation of many successful governance systems for both the government and commercial sectors, including those for Capital One and the Department of Homeland Security. Utilizing her undergraduate Bachelors of Science degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Virginia, coupled with her Masters of Science degree in Computer Science from Georgia Tech, she has championed not only development best practices but additionally brought code management and automation into the Identity and Access Management world. In her spare time, she loves to expand her knowledge of IAM systems, including SailPoint's IdentityIQ and SecurityIQ and ForgeRock's Identity Management platform. Alisha is a certified SailPoint IdentityIQ Engineer and works at UberEther Inc. as an Identity Architect.
