Everything I Needed to Know About Identity Governance I Learned from D&D

Watch the video


In today's digital landscape, organizations face the critical challenge of protecting sensitive data and ensuring appropriate access controls for their resources. Identity governance plays a pivotal role in addressing this challenge. In this engaging and interactive session, we will embark on a unique journey inspired by the world of Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) to explore the intricacies of building and managing an identity governance program. Drawing parallels between the quests undertaken in D&D and the challenges faced in IAM, we will examine the key components of an IAM system. Along the way we'll build our character sheets, map the dungeon, face external threats, combat monsters, acquire artifacts, and, hopefully, level-up upon successful completion of our quest.

Panel: Real-World Success with Identity Architecture Programs

Watch the video


Effective Identity Architecture programs have become crucial for organizations of all sizes and industries. IAM solutions empower businesses to securely manage user identities, control access to resources, and protect sensitive information. However, moving beyond your documented framework to implementing and achieving real-world success with an identity architecture program can present enormous challenges and complexities. This panel discussion brings together industry experts, thought leaders, and practitioners who have successfully navigated the intricacies of using their identity architecture programs to achieve tangible results in their respective organizations. They will share their insights, experiences, and best practices in deploying and maintaining IAM solutions to drive real-world success.

Key topics to be explored during the panel discussion include: 1) understanding the fundamental components of a robust identity architecture, 2) addressing common challenges organizations face when implementing IAM solutions, such as organizational resistance, cultural change, budget constraints, and aligning IAM with business objectives, 3) exploring the critical role of IAM in ensuring data security and regulatory compliance, 4) balancing security with user experience to create seamless and intuitive IAM workflows, 5) navigating the complexities of IAM implementation in cloud-based and hybrid environments, and 6) identifying key performance indicators (KPIs) and metrics to measure the effectiveness and return on investment of an identity architecture.

Attendees will gain valuable insights from the diverse perspectives of the panelists, enabling them to make informed decisions and overcome challenges when implementing or enhancing their own IAM architectures. Whether attendees are new to IAM or seeking to optimize their existing solutions, this panel discussion will provide actionable strategies and lessons learned for achieving real-world success with identity architecture in today's dynamic business environment.
