PrivSec Focus: Identity & Access Management



A Global Livestream Experience




About PrivSec Focus - Identity & Access Management

PrivSec Focus - Identity & Access Management returns in 2022 on 20th April, for another deep-dive into identity and access management.

The need for a robust identity and access management (IAM) strategy has become an integral part of enterprise IT. Strong IAM solutions can enable enterprises to boost employee productivity and bolster their overall security postures. However, the growth of cloud computing and an increasingly distributed mobile workforce make IAM more complex every day.

Organisational teams in charge of authenticating user identities and managing access to corporate resources must walk a fine line, ensuring that the enterprise has robust security controls in place while streamlining authentication procedures to increase user productivity.

In the end, business is about delivering value to customers, and IAM is an essential part of ensuring that employees are both empowered to deliver that value and prevented from damaging the business’s reputation, security, or bottom line. 

When considering adopting or changing an IAM strategy, enterprises must be aware of some of the most important trends in authenticating identity and managing access to corporate applications.

The general IAM landscape is becoming increasingly complex and must continue to evolve with advancing security threats, posing specific challenges for both users and administrators.

The most important elements of a holistic IAM solution—including centralized access management, automation, reporting, and contextual application of security policies—can help enterprises meet those challenges while accommodating dynamic growth.

”Privsec events are low on sales and high on information. The quality of content and knowledge of a broad range of experts make them an absolutely indispensable resource for anyone in the sector. These events are second to none for content and quality. I use them almost solely for my own learning, finding them always current, comprehensive and thought provoking.”
