COVID has Accelerated Public Demand for Digital ID
Sep 13, 2021

Digital ID and Authentication Council of Canada (DIACC) research finds that three-quarters of Canadians feel that it’s important to have a secure, trusted, and privacy-enhancing digital ID to safely and securely make transactions online. As federal governments focus on post-pandemic recovery, investing in digital ID makes strong economic sense, especially for small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs). For SMEs, the impact of digital identity could be used to improve processes that are difficult today.

This is especially true in situations where businesses need to provide proof of identity to another business. Considering SMEs account for approximately 30 percent of Canada’s overall GDP ($450 billion), if we assume that the average SME could be just one percent more efficient with access to trusted digital identity, this results in a potential $4.5 billion of added value to SMEs and reinvestments in the Canadian economy. This presentation will provide a detailed overview of research performed over the course of 2 years to quantify public perception and demand for secure, interoperable, digital identity that works across the whole of the economy.

As organizations are recovering from the pandemic, the need to adapt to rapid technology, organization and social changes makes many of them embark on a digital transformation at high speed. Investments to drive online business, powered by customer insights and an attractive user experience, yet secure and compliant to rules and regulations, have never been bigger.
Integrating Marketing and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) functions with Customer Identity & Access Management (CIAM), if done well, can help business owners achieve the ROI they are looking for.

Panel | The Modern Approach to Identity Governance
Sep 15, 2021

What if we took the traditional way of thinking of Identity Governance and reversed it completely? Putting together a successful IGA program has commonly been a long haul,

A headache,

A mess,

A budget destroyer,

And an expectation disappointer.

There is a new way. Some call us crazy and some say its impossible. However, those who have experienced the new way call us visionaries. We have been presenting a modern ideology and process for IGA that drastically reduces the time to value, the total cost of ownership, and the economic impact of an Identity Governance Solution.

This panel will focus on strategic order of operations, calculating the economic return of the modern approach, how to optimize AI/ML in Identity Governance, and the ways simplicity expediates the path to stronger compliance and security postures.

Where Stands the Sovereign Self?
Sep 13, 2021

When thinking about what SSI means for enterprises and providers of services to enterprises, it's easy to forget that SSI is about each of our sovereign selves. This means SSI should give us each a clear sense of independence, agency, and obvious freedom from the old centralized Identity Provider Relying Party model, and the federated one that followed from it. But we aren't there yet. What will it take to get us there—for our sovereign selves, and not just for hot new SSI businesses?

Secrets in the Clouds: The Journey of Digital Vaults to Cloud
Sep 15, 2021

When we traditionally think of vaults, we expect them to be in the close vicinity of a user. In our rapidly digitising world, the nature of such vaults have transformed as well. Data *(or Password, whichever word you think is correct)* vaults which are expected to be located on premises are now digital, making ownership of these vaults and access to these vaults critical functions for an organisation. The Cloud hosts a lot of secrets and this journey of vaults becoming digital and part of Cloud Environments is nothing but fascinating.
