Seminar A – Build trust in your business: orchestrate your activity


As we move towards a password-free world in an attempt to facilitate frictionless access on a globally dispersed and distributed way, businesses are having to integrate their It function into increasingly complex ecosystems. In order to do so successfully, what is required more than anything is for this environment to be founded on trust.

In this session, we will address how to deploy, implement, and manage an identity hub which can orchestrate your IAM integration into the wider business digital ecosystem.

Seminar B – Venafi – Rise of Machines: Protecting your Machine Identities


Kevin Bocek, Vice President, Security Strategy & Threat Intelligence, Venafi

The number of machines of all types is on the rise. Every machine requires an identity.

However, compromise, misuse, and fraud of machine identities are prime attack vectors for hackers. Errors create debilitating outages and millions in lost business. That’s why leading analysts are recommending Machine Identity Management as a top security trend.

Attend this session to learn three things your organisation can do to secure Machine Identities.

Seminar C – Auth0 – The Login Experience Customers Want


Domanic Smith-Jones, Solutions Engineer, Auth0

Consumers around the world are becoming more educated on best practices, and are increasingly considering how application and service providers implement and manage identity when deciding whether to interact with and share their personal information. Auth0 and YouGov’s recently published global research, ‘The Login Experience Customers Want’, reveals that most businesses fail to meet consumer expectations around login technology, and risk frustrating their users and losing sales, as more than 8 in 10 consumers abandon carts or apps due to arduous login experiences.

In this session, Domanic Smith-Jones, Solutions Engineer at Auth0, will discuss:

– The widening gap in consumer expectations.
– What this means for the identity management landscape.
– How the desire for convenience and security is driving consumers to seek out modern identity solutions.
– How you can deliver both convenience and security without compromise

Seminar D – One Identity – Distributed Privilege in a Distributed World


Robert Byrne, Field Strategist, One Identity

It is a given that we operate now in a distributed multi-cloud world. This has brought many advantages in terms of accessibility and agility but comes with an expanded attack surface and increased risk. Experience is showing that most security failures are due to flaws in configuration and access management rather than flaws in IT software or platforms. This session explores how we can address these problems using next-gen approaches to Privilege and Identity Governance.

We will look at Privilege + Governance as applied to topics like remote privileged workers, Cloud Platforms, Third Parties and RPAs. The goal here is to substantially mitigate risk and enhance breach resiliency all these cases.

Seminar E – BeyondTrust – Building Cybersecurity Immunity to Ransomware with PAM


James Maude, Lead Cyber Security Researcher, BeyondTrust

Ransomware shows no signs of abating. Digital transformation, expanding cloud deployments, and increased remote work are all creating new planes of privileges for ransomware to exploit. In the session James Maude, Lead Cyber Security Researcher, BeyondTrust, will explore ransomware attacks and how you can protect your environment by making it inhospitable to them.

Attend this session to learn:

• 6 things to know about ransomware

• Realistic security practices you can implement to protect against ransomware

Seminar F – ThirdSpace – How to Avoid the Human Trojan Horse with Microsoft Identity Governance


Marcus Idle, Head of External Identity, ThirdSpace

Organisations spend a lot of time and money building cutting edge cyber defences around critical systems, infrastructure and sensitive data. But all too often the importance of strong identity governance can be overlooked as a strategy to protect the organisation.

If the story of Troy has taught us anything, it’s that the most dangerous threats can arise from enemies you unwittingly invite into your organisation.

In this session ThirdSpace’s Identity Governance Expert, Marcus Idle demonstrates the newest B2B Access and Identity Governance functionality now available within Microsoft’s Azure Active Directory. Discover how to improve security and reduce insider risks through focusing on improved access governance.

You’ll learn:

  • How Azure AD B2B can be used to securely grant (and manage) guest user access into your environment
  • How Azure governance features such as Entitlements management, Access Reviews and Privileged Access work in practice – INCLUDING A STEP BY STEP DEMO
  • Real life stories of organisations that have overcome security challenges with improved identity governance

Authentication v Authorisation
Authentication. Authorization. It’s all just logging in right? Are they essentially the same thing? Although some may use the terms interchangeably, they are actually very different concepts and understanding how they differ is important for anyone in the security space. In the most simplistic terms, authentication is the process of ensuring the user is who...
Introducing Code Commit Signing to Secure Your SDLC
In today’s model of distributed software in the cloud, engineering teams are developing, building, and delivering all the time. Plus, with continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines, there are no stopping points for manual security checks. Once the entire build is complete, it’s even more difficult, time-consuming, and resource-intensive to check the entire build...
The history and future of passwords
The inception of passwords in the 1960s changed the digital world as we know it. Passwords are now an unconscious standard practice in the lives of most, and from your first pet to the street you grew up on, they are deeply ingrained in our minds. The first passwords introduced the concept of authentication to cybersecurity, or...
