Security Configuration Management
I think this is my favorite article today.  I'm a software configuration manager -SCM- (code/build/release) by trade.  I see so many parallels here between the core intent behind good SCM, source revision control and application library version management.  The whole idea of change managing an Enterprise to ensure security and data integrity is a natural fit, yet somehow - unlike in the software development world - it has taken a long time for the tools to do that to come together.  

In SCM, of course, there are plenty of issues with getting coders to follow the rules or to even adopt SCM in the first place.  I imagine there are going to be lots of similar conversations with Enterprise staff in rolling out solutions like this due to the overhead that will be introduced.  As with all automated solutions, they are only truly "semi-"automated and there still needs to be human eyes and hands on the toolset.

Yet this is what we need, sadly, to keep both external and internal threats under wraps.  Don't think of this as "Big Brother" though - it's just another type of change management.  It's not you being watched, just the data and the environment.

Keeping Insiders Out
This is why having an efficient off-boarding process is crucial. Without one, employees disgruntled or not can have access for no reason far after they have "left". This represents a rather large security hole as many organizations off-boarding procedures are less than efficient.
