Tomorrow's IAM for Investing the Right Way
Identity and Access Management is changing a lot currently. Traditional approaches are increasingly reconsidered and cloud (first) strategies are leading to a shift from traditional, monolithic, on-premises IAM towards IDaaS (Identity as a Service), frequently with a set of more modular capabilities. Furthermore, IAM is crucial to meet regulatory requirements, to comply with standards such as ISO 270xx, and to mitigate cybersecurity risks, but also for improving business efficiency in onboarding employees, business partners, and customers.

Thus, understanding the elements of IAM and the concepts for today's and tomorrow's IAM is essential for investing the right way. In this KC Master Class, you learn what your team needs as a foundation for successfully evolving the corporate IAM.

With a comprehensive overview of the vendor landscape, you will be able to talk at eye-level with your peers and with your IAM suppliers.

Please note: This KC Master Class does not include any product-related training elements.
