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


Marcus Idle, Head of External Identity, ThirdSpace

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.

Businesses 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 – is this your Achilles’ heel?

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 access packages, 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

Seminar G – Saviynt – Navigating the Modern Identity Landscape


Chris Owen, Director of Product Management, Saviynt

Identity isn’t what it was a decade ago. Changes in the technology and regulatory landscape, user behaviour, and organisational priorities have transformed it from a compliance-oriented discipline to a business enabler — and often a board-level initiative. It has also become the first step to adopting a modern Zero Trust maturity model.

New technology has impacted the way identity is perceived and practiced, accelerating the need for digital transformation. As a result, we see trends in technology convergence, cloud transformation, software simplification, intelligent automation, and business optimisation. Starting with the right strategy is critical for navigating today’s complex security landscape and setting your organisation up for success.

Current trends & challenges we’ll be covering:

  • Leading factors influencing identity transformation
  • Top trends driving industry change, plus predictions
  • Benefits of modernising IAM solutions and practices
  • Key lessons learned
  • Insight on common pitfalls and winning strategies
