Re: Minor correction
Thanks David. I agree the article doesnt mention this as a leading cause, I did have another source for that so will have to dig it up. However, it does mention that terminated employees still had access to systems which is what I think is most relevant when considering a benefit of implementing SCIM.

Minor correction
Hi Rich, Thanks for this interesting article. As a side note, I think your article contains an incorrect information. You state that According to the FBI, unprovisioned account access is one of the leading causes for data breaches and insider threat attacks. and provide a link to a 2014 DHS public announcement. That announcement does not make in any way the above statement. It only states that disgruntled and former employees pose a significant cyber threat. From significant cyber threat to leading cause, theres a quite a semantic distance. From disgruntled and former employees to unprovisioned accounts as well. While I see your line of reasoning and desire to strengthen your argument, and admit that everyone (including me) makes mistakes, I think it is important for the credibility of our industry that we demand more rigor from ourselves. Best regards, David
