Security Starts Here …… Identity

Ian Stimpson, Solution Architect, One Identity

This seminar will focus on why any effective security program must start with identity. Ian will walk you through the concept of identity-based security – what it is, what its components are and how your organization can achieve it. See how you can secure the identities of your line-of-business users, as well as your all-powerful privileged users, and how you can safely administer and govern access across your diverse enterprise.

Identity Governance 2.0: Lessons Learnt from the Best-In-Class

Maarten Decat, CTO, Elimity

Because of the ever-growing compliance and security requirements, the focus of IAM keeps tilting towards governance in favour of provisioning. While this evolution has been going on for years now, the fact that technologies such as data analytics and AI have become mainstream opens up vast new possibilities. As high-end IAM solution provider, we have been involved in several innovative IAM projects involving these technologies, and we start to see the growth of a fundamentally new approach to identity governance. In this session, we discuss several of these projects and give insights into the strategic initiatives of some of the most forward-looking IAM departments in Europe.

The Texas Hold ‘Em of Cybersecurity: Mitigating Risky Decisions

Diana Volere, Chief Evangelist / Director of Product Marketing, Saviynt

Many organisations treat cybersecurity like a game of roulette. Roulette is a risky game of chance where the best strategies involve sticking with one choice and continuously waiting for it to provide a benefit. Many organisations treat their cybersecurity programs the same way, making minimal changes and hoping that they continue to bet lucky. While roulette may be a game of chance, Texas Hold ‘Em is a game of statistics. At each step, players review the new cards, apply statistics to their hands, and analyse what to do next. Creating a holistic Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) program based in analytics can turn your cybersecurity posture from a game of roulette to one of Texas Hold ‘Em so that you can better mitigate risky access decisions.

In this session, Diana will discuss:

  • Reading The Opening Pot
  • Assessing Information Asset and User Risk Reading the River
  • Analysing Access Risk Changes Across the Request/Review/Certification Cycle Going All In
  • Continuously Monitoring for Compliance Violations and Mitigating Risk with Analytics
  • Creating a risk-based IGA program and incorporating context-aware entitlements can mature your data privacy and security program from a game of roulette to a game of Texas Hold ‘Em, giving you more control over protecting your organisation.
