Parent Track


With the growing number and new vectors of cyber attacks, identity and access management is taking a center stage and is becoming a new defence outline. Furthermore, increased number of connected devices and employee mobility are making the job of cybersecurity professionals more difficult. In this context, only perimeter-based safeguarding measures are no longer meeting the security needs and implementation of adequate IAM and cybersecurity tools is necessary. Identity-based technologies like User Behavior Analytics can help in identifying anomalous behavior and detect internal and external threats. By utilizing a combination of already existing IAM, authentication and other technologies, Zero Trust security approach is also gaining popularity.

This track will highlight the new cybersecurity challenges and the role which identity management plays in solving them.

Identity Is at the Center of Zero Trust, Not the Network
John Tolbert, KuppingerCole

Panel: Placing Identity at the Center of Security Designs & Models
John Tolbert, KuppingerCole • David Lee, Sailpoint • Richard Bird, SecZetta

What does it mean to have identity at the center of your security infrastructure? At its core, it says that we have to build our solutions to always question who someone is, what they want to do. We can no longer blindly trust that just because they come from a known location those questions no longer matter. At the center of those questions is a critical concept: identity. At the center of those questions is one crucial idea: identity. Our solutions must continually validate the identity...

Harness Your Identity Analytics to Deliver Contextual Authentication
Steve Hutchinson, GE Digital

Identity Analytics (IdA) has experienced tremendous growth within the cybersecurity community. Most of the work has focused on data mining to analyze existing user rights to reduce over-provisioning and improve privileged access management systems. But what about authentication systems that must make decisions using dynamic data that is created in real-time? Steve “Hutch” Hutchinson, GE’s Principal Cybersecurity Architect, will show how you can leverage your own hidden...

Panel: Transforming Secure Access to be Intelligent
Niklas Brask, Pointsharp AB • Dr. Torsten Lodderstedt, AG • Steve Hutchinson, GE Digital • Ingo Schubert, SecurID an RSA Company • Simon Moffatt, ForgeRock

When it comes to making access decisions, it’s all about acting smart. In the speed of today’s business agility requirements, we cannot stop users at the door all the time and ask for their ID. We need to know them. Intelligent Access provides the benefit of reducing friction AND adding security to protect applications and data that are critical to the business. It provides security and convenience, considering the needs of the modern workforce. In this session we will discuss a...
