Traditional enterprise IAM solutions still largely follow the siloed approach, with different departments and teams responsible for managing individual IT systems. Increasing complexity of IAM systems, especially for the largest, geographically distributed companies can also substantially reduce other employee’s business productivity, to say nothing about uncovering and mitigating security incidents. Next-generation IAM systems should be capable of utilizing continuous learning and reasoning to support humans in their decision-making and help them perform their tasks more quickly. Applications of cognitive technologies to cyber-security and IAM promise just that.
In this webinar, you will learn about:
- Current state and the hottest trends in Cognitive Security and IAM;
- Modernizing IAM for better operational efficiency, cyber-resilience and privacy protection;
- Unique challenges of IAM programs for large international enterprises and how application of cognitive principles helps alleviate them;
- IBM’s latest developments in the field of Cognitive IAM and Access Governance.
In the first part of the webinar, Martin Kuppinger, founder and Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole, will provide an overview of cognitive solutions, in particular cognitive security, and then look at the potential cognitive technologies hold for the domain of IAM. He will clarify terminology and unveil the potential of these technologies – and why they now are ready for broad-scale use.
In the second part, Raghu Dev, IAM Strategy Lead at IBM, will present the use of cognitive technologies to solve the problem at hand. He will talk about cognition as defined in IBM, drivers that support this disruptive thinking and the necessity of building a basic risk aware cognitive Identity and access management system. Moreover, he will talk about the challenges and solutions inherent in making a cognitive solution work in practice.
Cybercriminals are growing in number and sophistication, rendering traditional solutions powerless against today’s advanced threats. IBM Security, with close to 8,000 security professionals worldwide, helps more than 10,000 clients address their most critical needs: transforming their security programs; optimizing operations and response systems; and protecting critical information.
During the past decade, IBM has invested more than $2 billion on security research and development, resulting in 3,700+ security-related patents, and acquired 19 security companies to build out its portfolio. Today, IBM Security delivers next-generation security technology and services, including Watson for Cyber Security, a cloud-based version of IBM cognitive technology trained on the language of security.
The upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) can be a major challenge for any organization established or just doing business in the European Union. Soon, failing to properly protect personal information of EU residents may lead to harsh financial penalties, so organizations are scrambling to understand the impact of GDPR on their processes, applications and systems and to adapt to the new requirements accordingly.
Managing customer information in a digitally transformed economy with numerous business partners demanding access is one of the most significant challenges today, and it will continue to evolve rapidly. Besides that, the challenge is to offer user-friendly login procedures via social media accounts, passwords or biometric devices while securing and respecting personal data at the same time CIW Europe is a joint Event with our Partner CXP (Le Groupe CXP, Paris, France).
