Bruno Falcão, CIAM Product Manager, Roche

An alternative thinking on how to build your CIAM solutions not being biased by your IAM experience and self-learning. Bruno will trigger new reflections about what is important to think in CIAM and leave your IAM thinking behind.

  • What should you focus on when implementing your CIAM solution?
  • How to break your biased thoughts because you are thinking IAM to implement CIAM
  • What should you focus on next, after your first steps into CIAM?

Adrift in a sea of Cyber-terror: Are you looking for a life jacket or a lifeboat?

As you try to defend yourselves against current threats and have the desire to better control the access you hand out, you need to choose the right solution. With vendors in the Access Management and Privileged Access Management space branching out and offering IGA-like capabilities, it becomes more difficult to choose. Especially if you must rely on websites of different vendors, as you will quickly learn that they all use the same verbiage, making it difficult to understand the actual differences between these offerings. Differences you will need to understand to distinguish between the life jacket and the lifeboat before committing to a solution.

Defeating the Bots -How AI is enabling organisations to save their brand and their revenues

Matthew Berzinski, Senior Director of Product Management, ForgeRock

With the rapid increase in online commerce, it is imperative that organisations deliver great, friction free online experiences to customers to drive brand loyalty and grow business. However malicious actors are taking advantage of this by leveraging bots and other technology to buy out highly sought after items and then resell them on secondary markets, thus driving down brand loyalty and getting between organisations and their customers. In this session we will review a case study of how retail organisations are using Artificial Intelligence and flexible journey orchestration to keep their inventory out of the hands of the fraudsters and available for their loyal customers.

Case Study: Journey with FIDO2 Authentication

FIDO2 (Fast Identity Online 2) is a set of standards for secure and convenient authentication. It uses public key cryptography to enhance security and eliminate the need for traditional passwords. This case study demonstrates how FIDO2 can be applied in the context of employee authentication, providing a balance between security and user convenience.

Using Authentication Priorities on its mission to implement safe and easy authentication solution, ABN AMRO has identified two fundamental priorities:
1. User experience
2. Security

Securing the future of digital identity

Mehmet Yaliman, Principal Solutions Architect, Ping Identity

Today’s identity systems are a centralized collection of user data, and have become the #1 target for attackers. According to the Verizon DBIR, more than 80% of breaches start with compromised credentials. Decentralized identity represents a massive paradigm shift to a safer, more secure future by making the user’s device the transport mechanism for that single user’s data. In other words, no more “trusted” third parties.

Decentralized identity eliminates the need to build connections into federation systems, and reduces the amount of personally identifiable information organizations must collect.

In short, we’ll discuss how shifting to a decentralized identity model reduces risk for organizations while simultaneously improving users privacy.

Intro to meeting NIS2 compliance for Privileged Access

Chris Dearden, Systems Engineer, Delinea

The revised NIS Directive, also known as the NIS2 Directive, has an impact on the cybersecurity practices of critical or important European entities. The primary objective of the NIS2 directive is to better protect organizations that are critical to economic and social development in the EU. Privileged Access Management (PAM) is key to achieving compliance with the NIS/NIS2 Directives. In this session , see how the Delinea platform can provide effective vaulting , Server & Workstation PAM and 3rd party Remote access to meet those compliance needs.

Prevention of Lateral Movement using MFA and service account protection in Active Directory

Frank Leavis, Solution Engineer EMEA, Silverfort

In recent years we have witnessed the commodization of lateral movement skills required for attacks on IT infrastructure, leading to massive increases in the spread of ransomware, both in terms of scale of these attacks as well as the size of their impact on business critical assets.

What are the security gaps to address this exponential phase of the attack?

This session addresses a novel approach to identity security, which allows detection of various types of lateral movement as well as response policies that effectively block this part of the attack.

PAM: The critical foundation for a successful Identity Security strategy

James Maude, Director, Research, BeyondTrust

There is a fundamental shift in the cyber battleground from traditional perimeter and endpoint security into the world of identity security. Attackers are successfully exploiting gaps in visibility between IAM and security tools, leading to a new discipline of Identity Threat Detection and Response (ITDR)

In this session we will discuss:

  • Examples of tactics used in real world attacks and highlight mitigations available.
  • How Privilege Access Management (PAM) is evolving to meet the needs of ITDR.
  • How implementing least privilege and PAM as foundational controls can thwart attackers exploiting privileged accounts and overly permissive access to systems.

When one becomes two: Resource hierarchy strategies for a divested organization

Manjir Sen, Technical Product Owner, Nuuday A/S

This presentation will cover various scenarios encountered by Nuuday whilst going through a complex scenario. Various cybersecurity concerns occur during the splitting of an organisation due to the changing of staff, access rights, and asset transition. This is a 4-year process that requires an IAM programme supported by the right technology to maximise productivity, promote growth, and safeguard sensitive corporate assets, whilst ensuring the whole process is seamless for the end-user.

  • IAM is an integral part of establishing Nuuday’s independent identity processes separated from TDC NET.
  • IAM is responsible for splitting the ownership of Identity and Business Data between Nuuday and TDCNET.
  • IAM is responsible for splitting the consumer and B2B user journeys for Nuuday and TDC NET.
