Cognitive Technologies and the Future of Identity & Access Management
Like any other field of information technology, identity and access management has been rapidly evolving to meet new business challenges created by the Digital Transformation. As modern businesses are becoming increasingly open and interconnected, IAM solutions now need to cover not just employees, but customers, partners and smart IoT devices. They must be able to handle the growing complexity of managing and monitoring access to the company’s most valuable digital assets, regardless of their format, location or scale, while still maintaining compliance and protecting them from cyber risks.

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.
