ABC: Agile Business – Connected

  •  TYPE: Track    START DATE: Wednesday, May 14, 2014     START TIME: 11:00    LOCATION:  AMMERSEE I
Conference Agenda


Today’s businesses are operating in a global and ever-changing environment. Economic turmoil increasingly becomes a constant factor. Regulatory compliance imposes another challenge.

Agility has become one of the key success factors for organizations, which have to re-define their business models - and invent new ones - quickly. Time-to-market in many industries today is what makes the difference between success and failure. Agility drives business demand to IT.

Enabling the agile, connected business requires new concepts for Information Security. This new ABC (Agile Business: Connected) concept for both business management and Information Security means re-thinking how organizations manage access to their corporate information. This has to happen consistently, regardless of where information resides: Cloud or on-premise. This has to work for all types of users, not only the employees, but also business partners and customers.

The new ABC and the role of Cloud IAM
Marco Rohrer, IPG AG • Ramses Gallego, Dell • Thierry Winter, Evidian • Jason Hart, SafeNet

Secure access to Cloud services, on-boarding of external partners, access to collaborative industry networks and business partner applications: Securely enabling the “Computing Troika” of Cloud, Mobile and Social Computing is a must for any organization.

Identity Relationship Management: From IAM to IRM
Joni Brennan, Digital ID & Authentication Council of Canada

Identity and Access Management (IAM) services were traditionally built for a company’s internal use, to assist with manual on and off boarding, and establishing access privileges to company data and systems behind the firewall. Today though, a company must implement a dynamic IAM solution that serves employees, customers, partners and devices, regardless of location. This is the evolution of IAM to IRM: Identity Relationship Management. As more and more people, devices, and...
