The Changing Cyber Threat Landscape and its impact on IAM (II)

Combined Session
Wednesday, May 11, 2022 12:00—13:00
Location: A05-06

Today’s IAM discipline tackles the challenges of Identity and Access Management principles from within an organization where there is a tight integration between IT infrastructure and well-coordinated processes and procedures. However, without access to quality and reliable cyber-intelligence, security leaders would often be blind-sided by external threats targeting them.

Part II of CYFIRMA’s workshop will focus on insights provided by CTI to improve IAM-based security, demonstrating real-world examples.

Understanding the Threat Landscape and its impact to IAM Strategies

CYFIRMA will present the importance of having a unified view into six threat pillars – attack surface discovery, vulnerability intelligence, brand intelligence, digital risk discovery, situational awareness, and cyber-intelligence. CYFIRMA shows by analyzing threat indicators collected from the deep web, dark web, hacker forums and other closed communities, as well as CYFIRMA’s own research, attacks can be predicted using probability models and analytics engines.

By providing threat intelligence from the outside, CYFIRMA can share early warning insights when signs of cyberattacks are detected, enabling cyber teams to take rapid action to thwart attempts at intellectual property theft, ransomware attacks, and other malicious activities. Delegates will learn from this session the strategies to protect identity and account data in order to thwart impending attacks.
