Inaugural e-Crime & IdAM Forum
London, 18th October 2018
How next gen IdAM improves security, compliance and the bottom line
Securing digital identities, boosting compliance
Identity and access management is a critical part of any enterprise security plan. But much more than that, it is increasingly the key to successful digital transformation, as businesses strive to adapt to the new economy and start to use IdAM to drive both employee productivity and customer engagement.
Compromised user credentials and poorly managed access frameworks have long been identified as a critical security weakness. And this weakness is exacerbated by the new commercial and customer engagement models that have extended the identity boundary of today's digital businesses.
So which IdAM solutions best satisfy the needs of security professionals who now need to manage identities and access across a huge variety of employees, partners, and customers, device access methods, and hosting models?
And how can IdAM help with the increasing regulatory burden of initiatives such as GDPR?
Supporting new business initiatives
Conventional IdAM strategies and solutions have tended to be tactical: they have been viewed as the answer to a discrete security and/or compliance issue. However, is this enough?
Companies now realise that their IdAM programmes have to cope with new partnership and customer engagement models and the extended identity boundary of today's digital businesses. Unless employees can operate with the technology they need, in the locations they want at the speed they need, the business suffers. And if customer journeys are too complex or annoying, the business suffers.
Good IdAM strategies and technologies are critical to the success of these new internal and external business models. So what should CISOs be doing in the IdAM space to maximise benefits to the business and how can they use IdAM metrics to get senior management buy-in?
And what about the future of IdAM? From single-sign-on to multi-factor authentication to biometrics, security professionals need to future-proof their IdAM infrastructure. What are the key priorities?
The e-Crime & IdAM Forum will cover these and other key subjects for its audience of professionals tasked with safeguarding digital assets and sensitive data. There will be real-life case studies, strategic talks and technical break-out sessions to help end-users understand how these new technologies can be cost-effectively deployed in real-life business situations.
