Security in companies is very important and should never be joked with, or termed trivial. Then again, you did think what kind of overlap exists between security, identity and compliance. This is because these topics are usually mentioned together by people.
A better understanding can result when you see identity management as both a child and sibling of security. If you think or see security as an ongoing effort to assure protection to that which we hold valuable, identity management might be thought of as one of the means to ensure that can occur, (optimum access provision), and compliance may be a means to ensure (through process and reporting) that all protection occurs according to agreed-upon guidelines.
Generally, it therefore means doing what you can or the best you can, with what you have to make life and business ventures less risky. At the end of the day, the aim is to help manage risk as best as we can in an uncertain world given the tools we have.
A security, identity and compliance director will be responsible for the planning, development and implementation of overall information systems security program to promote information systems reliability and accessibility, while protecting and defending against unauthorized access to systems, networks, and data.
A typical applications is AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) which enables you to securely control access to AWS services and resources for your users. With this, you can create and manage AWS users and groups, and use permissions to allow and deny their access to AWS resources.
