IDPro Workshop: An Introduction to Identity Management

  • TYPE: Pre-conference Event DATE: Wednesday, September 25, 2019 TIME: 10:00-12:00 LOCATION: Emerald 2 & 3

For identity practitioners who are early in their career, security leaders and executives responsible for identity systems, it can be difficult to even figure out where to start with Digital Identity. Every explanation seems to reference a multitude of other practices and dozens of confusing acronyms. Even seasoned professionals can lose track of what's new, especially if it's outside of their immediate area of focus. This workshop -- provided by IDPro -- will provide a comprehensive (and fun) introductory view of the identity world that will give participants a solid understanding of IAM’s foundations. In this workshop, attendees will learn about:

  • The ways to categorize identity technologies and techniques
  • Difference between employee-centric and customer-centric identity
  • How breaking the identity world into admin- and run-time pieces can ease the identity learning curve
  • How all of the piece parts of digital identity can come together in different ways for different purposes
