Identity Management as a Service - What it is and How to Build One
I considered myself quite an experienced programmer and having some expertise in Identity management when I was hired by Swedbank to work as full time Identity engineer. Besides projects, I had assignment to describe an architecture of the IAM as a service from my manager. Honestly, I had no clue about how to envision it. I tried to assemble standards and squeeze something out from practices and papers. But these were not really all my ideas and I did not feel much confident. But...

In this talk we will present two different approaches on how an organization can manage multi-cloud identities and access. The models are based on real life examples we have found to work out for organizations we work with. What we learn with these examples is that there is a...

The impact of agile on progressing Identity Security
After applying an agile way of working for the last three years the Rabobank Identity & Access Management service has gone through a transformation. The increased autonomy of teams, using backlogs with prioritized epics, applying agile rituals in order to create space for growth in applying agile principles, all of these have affected how IAM services are developed and delivered. Where the arena is uncertain and customers have a somewhat-defined request the agile, iterative...

Improving IAM Success Rates with Rigorous Concepts
IAM programs in organizations have a reputation for difficulty and high failure rates. Through education and later through experience, professionals learn that communication is the most critical success factor in all human undertakings. We may have cutting-edge technology, generous budgets, and a competent team and still fail our project miserably. High-quality communication about IAM with our stakeholders is insufficient to succeed, but it is a necessary condition.  And...

Date: Tuesday, September 14, 2021 Time: 17:30-18:30 Location: ALPSEE

Going Passwordless and Beyond - The Future of Identity Management
The onslaught of account takeover attacks from insecure passwords is driving the rapid adoption of passwordless solutions.  While the risk reduction benefits are substantial, eliminating passwords is just the first step on the path to fundamentally strong authentication.  In the “new normal” era of work from anywhere, and rapidly increasing cloud adoption, organizations are moving to a new risk-based authentication model.  Advanced organizations are validating...

Panel: APIs - Where Security Meets Identity Management
Traditional IAM models have focused on users, policies, and roles, which met the needs of web applications in years past but as application development has evolved to APIs, an innovative approach to identity management is required. It is no longer just users, roles, and permissions. APIs must be integrated into the identity and access management framework to ensure adequate governance and security. Within an API there is a requestor (often on behalf of a user), a service...

Cloudification of Access Management – Lessons Learned from the Migration of a Large-scale Production System
Access Management is a crucial capability in the IT infrastructure of any Enterprise. But it is even further crucial, when the whole application landscape is integrated, i.e., more than 1,800 applications used by millions of users. Back in 2017 we modernized the existing access infrastructure and set up ForgeRock as its successor on-premises in our data center. With rising demands regarding availability, scalability, and support for market-specific customizations, as well as more...

In a 2018 study by Onus & Ponemon on data risk in the third-party ecosystem, more than 75% of companies surveyed said they believe third-party cybersecurity incidents are increasing. Those companies were right to believe that. As our world becomes more digitized, and thus more interconnected, it becomes increasingly more difficult to safeguard organizations from cybercrime. Tack on to that challenge a global pandemic that all but forced organizations to become...
