Recent web searches show the massive volume of unemployment insurance fraud occurring across the United States. The increase in unemployment claims due to job losses stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with aging IT systems, have led to an increase in identity theft, fraud, and loss of federal tax dollars. The State of Rhode Island estimates 43% of its unemployment claims in the past year may be fraudulent. California lost over $11 billion dollars to fraud in the past year.

Today we published a new study* conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of ForgeRock and our friends at Google Cloud on the state of identity and access management (IAM) in the cloud. It’s a terrific read, and I encourage you to check it out. We introduce an emerging concept called “Hybrid IAM,” which we think is the next phase of digital identity.

Cloud identity and access management (IAM) is a fast-growing trend that is predicted to extend well into the future. For example, Verified Market Research alone projects that, by 2027, the market for cloud IAM will be more than $14 billion. Yet, while the cloud-based IAM market is exploding, the reality is not all roses. In our last IAM 101 post, What are Hybrid IT and Hybrid Cloud?, we discussed the differences, benefits, and disadvantages of hybrid IT and hybrid cloud.

Welcome back to another episode of ForgeTalks. This week I met with ForgeRock Senior Director for Product Marketing, Tim Bedard, to discuss how organizations can address their identity governance fatigue.

In today's digital era, the insurance industry faces growing pressure on two fronts. First, firms must meet rising consumer expectations for a more modern, seamless, and convenient way of doing business. This includes unified access across products, a faster claims process, and greater transparency about data security and privacy. Second, established insurers must keep pace with innovations introduced by "insurtechs," including more personalized products, usage-based coverage, increased automation, and the ability to collect and analyze greater volumes of data more quickly.
