Customer Personalisation: Bridging CIAM and SSID

Katryna Dow, Founder & CEO, Meeco

With the rapid fusion of physical, biological and digital, identity is now more personal than ever. At the same time, data breaches, hacking and centralised honey pots mean that customers are more vulnerable than ever before.

How we collect and process data in order to personalise services may be the difference between gaining trust or getting fined.

A distributed ledger, Self-Sovereign Identity and Zero Knowledge Proofs offer new opportunities to build trusted data and identity stack. Taking the best of CIAM together with increasing the rights and protections for customers will drive connected use-cases, lower costs and enable new business models.

This session will focus on how incorporating SSID, ZKP and progressive disclosure enables an enterprise to personalise products and services without putting customers at risk.

Bridging CIAM and SSID means fewer data and more insight.

Thinking Outside the Perimeter: Principles of Zero Trust

Vinny Sagar, Solution Architect, Ping Identity

Ping Identity’s Vinny Sagar will present on how you can use the principles of Zero Trust. Security is improved where network perimeters shift and shrink to become resource perimeters (micro-perimeters), and where network-based trust is replaced by confidence from verifying the risk profile of users, devices, applications and data flows. The guiding principle behind Zero Trust is a methodology where this confidence is used to improve access decisions.

Come find out how the principles of Zero Trust will enable you to increase security, agility, productivity across your organisation and how Ping Identity can help.

How Privacy changes traditional approaches to digital identity in CIAM deployments

Colin Wallis, Executive Director, Kantara Initiative

As the digital identity domain of CIAM grows, not only does it require strong identity skills, but professionals need to have sharp privacy skills as well. This presentation will build out from the better-known requirements of security and data protection, to cover the more humanistic values around personal data privacy. These elements are key to CIAM deployments and fast becoming required knowledge for successful and GDPR identity management practice.

  • CIAM needs a different approach than the traditional approach to enterprise IAM
  • Customer enrolment into online services offers a great example as a case in point
  • Selected emerging best practice, standards and regulations that should apply in the context of CIAM
Enterprise IAM: The Booster for Digital Transformation

Darshana Gunawardana, Senior Technical Lead, WSO2

Digital Transformation has led to a new generation of products and services offered by businesses which integrates customers, employees and all other entities together. Integration with several systems with different identities involving different stakeholders lead to the need of properly governed digital identities of an enterprise. Having a well thought out IAM solution in an enterprise can provide this, along with a seamless experience for customers while ensuring their privacy and enforcing security guidelines mandated by the industry. Utilizing Enterprise IAM correctly will act as a catalyst in your digital transformation story boosting its progress.
In this session we will look at:

  • What are the requirements in an IAM perspective in a digital transformation journey?
  • Best practices to follow and pitfalls to avoid in your Enterprise IAM strategy


Getting the IAM Basics Right

David Doret, IAM & Data Protection Manager, BNP Paribas

The IAM industry is innovating at a steady pace and we all feel excited about fancy buzzwords and new products reaching the market with great promises.

Meanwhile, we – CISOs / IAM managers – must confront a tough reality. That reality is made of elusive and fragmented information systems, workforce and business processes. Still, as each day goes by, we protect our companies with our IAM processes and deliver productivity, compliance and security.

How do we accomplish that? First and foremost, by getting the IAM basics right. Again, again, and again.
In this talk, we will review what the IAM basics are and the foundational principles on which they are based.

• Key principles
• Key processes
• Key practices

More than Insider Threats: What Incident Response teaches us about Identity and Access Management

Richard Horne, Cyber Security Partner, PwC UK
Derek Gordon, UK IAM territory leader, PwC UK

Trust the Machines: Using AI and ML to Future-Proof Identity Governance

Paul Squires, Sales Engineer, SailPoint

Why is it that we inherently distrust machines? Is it lack of evidence or proof that they can do the job, fear of losing control or is the value they’re providing questionable? Trust is foundational for machine learning (ML) to be successful. Together, let us explore how trust can be established for successful identity governance. And, where convenient, how that trust can propel the adoption of ML to transform how you perform identity governance in the future.

Best Practice Processes for Identity Management and Access Governance

Govind Yadav, Senior Sales Engineer, Omada

Most organizations today are operating in a hybrid IT environment of on-premises and cloud-based applications, which make it difficult to get transparency on who has access to which IT systems and applications in an organization and why. Identity governance and administration (IGA) has become a cornerstone of solid IT security and in ensuring compliance with external regulations like GDPR, allowing organizations to implement automated processes for controlling, managing, and auditing access to systems and data. An important prerequisite to reduce the security risk and ensure compliance.
In this presentation you get an insight into best practice processes based on almost two decades experience in implementing IGA solutions in enterprises worldwide.

How to determine the security of a mobile authentication app

Petteri Ihalainen, Senior Specialist, National Cyber Security Centre, Finland

The market is littered with mobile authentication apps from simple OTP generators to sophisticated PKI & biometrics applications. But they all share the same challenge – how can they prove that they are actually secure?

This presentation takes a look at the unique challenge in evaluating the security of mobile authentication apps in the context of national regulation and eIDAS. We will present a global proposal for proving the security of a mobile authentication app. The proposal can be adopted by e.g. governments, organisations deploying app-based authentication solutions or by app vendors to evaluate their systems on how they can resist the various types of attacks.
