Universal Privilege Management – A Modern Approach to PAM

Karl Lankford
RVP Solutions Engineering, BeyondTrust
view profile

Karl Lankford, RVP Solutions Engineering, BeyondTrust

Virtually every cybersecurity breach today involves the exploitation of privileged access. Privileges are initially exploited to infiltrate an IT environment; once compromised by threat actors, privileges are further leveraged to move laterally, access assets, install malware, and inflict damage.

In this session, learn the key steps involved in achieving Universal Privilege Management, and how it is used to secure every user, session, and asset across your IT environment.

Topics covered include:

– Why relying on password management alone leaves dangerous gaps in protection

– Disrupting the cyberattack chain with privileged access security controls

– Essential steps to achieving rapid leaps in risk reduction

– Keys to a frictionless PAM solution that is invisible to end users

We will also share how the BeyondTrust Privileged Access Management (PAM) platform enables absolute control over every privilege in your environment to drastically reduce your attack surface and windows of exposure, while boosting business productivity.

Maximise Zero Trust with AI-driven Role Management

Tim Bedard
Senior Product Marketing Director, ForgeRock
view profile

Tim Bedard, Senior Product Marketing Director, ForgeRock

With growing cyber threats, organisations face mounting pressure to enforce Zero Trust principles, like least privilege access. But traditional Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) solutions rely on manual, labour-intensive processes that can no longer scale to meet today’s dynamic security requirements. It’s time for a better solution.

Find out how organizations can address these challenges through Role-based Access Control (RBAC) by:

– Leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to manage and enforce least privilege access

– Enforcing and enabling your organisation to quickly scale Zero Trust across your ecosystem

– Modernising your RBAC capabilities and processes to help you achieve regulatory compliance, mitigate risks, and reduce costs

Federated IAM: meeting the challenge of today’s identity driven business

Manjir Sen, Solutions Architect, Nuuday

IT is under constant pressure to provide easy access to a seemingly exponential number of cloud apps as quickly as possible whilst ensuring security and enabling productivity.

With a federated identity architecture, you can seamlessly enable the portability of identity information across otherwise autonomous security domains so employees can easily get into internal or external applications, while both partners and customers can securely access company data or systems, without the need for redundant user administration.

We address, how you can resolve your time-to-action pressures without compromising on security.

Why provisioning gives you a false sense of security

Hans-Robert Vermeulen
Identity Strategist, SailPoint
view profile

Hans-Robert Vermeulen, Identity Strategist , SailPoint

Companies have invested in solutions to automate access assignment. Although this often covers only basic provisioning, they feel well protected. This is a false sense of security. Enforcing a least privileged access model is not achieved by “fire and forget” provisioning or account creation. Least privileged stands no chance if we do not see and review changes being made inside applications, if we do not incorporate new access rights and new applications into our existing role model and increasingly important, if we have no clue if access is actually being used.

Come and listen to SailPoint where we will bring you on a journey to show you how to protect with certainty.

• How to get better insight and make smarter decisions with Artificial Intelligence & usage data

• Reduce overall risk exposure by only assigning access people actually need and use

• Not only report and analyze (SAP) SoD policies but overlay this with utilization data

IAM is a key element in securing the data of your company. Yet, IAM is also the front door of all employees.

• How is IAM presenting itself in your company?
• How to balance IAM security and ease of access?

Using a Digital Identity for Travel: what can we expect in the near future?

Annet Steenbergen, Project Lead Aruba Happy Flow 2.0, Government of Aruba

In March 2020, the Aruba Happy Flow 2.0 concept was close to the start of a pilot phase. The concept was to have only one enrolment and verification of the identity and then use (almost) only biometrics to travel, arrive, pick up a rental car and check in to a hotel. The Covid pandemic struck, and everything changed.

The priority became opening up the island to tourists again and facilitating the covid test results digitally.

A year and a half into the pandemic, digitization has accelerated on all fronts and especially for travel. The need for contactless facilitation has become urgent as we now need to share trusted digital health credentials.

The digital developments are many and, in this presentation, I will focus on what I think are the most pivotal that will change the way we travel.

• Identity management in travel; as example the Happy Flow 2.0 concept but in 2022
• Digital identities in travel
• What are the benefits for the passenger and stakeholders?
