Steve Tout - Risk Aware IAM for an Insecure World
Sep 23, 2017

In a world full of uncertainties and data breaches, Identity and Access Management (IAM) must deliver more than ever, faster than ever, for businesses to succeed at building trusted relationships and delighting customers at every interaction. With such large-scale breaches becoming commonplace, it is more important than ever to integrate threat intelligence insights proactively into authentication workflows. Risk aware IAM requires business processes to be enhanced by deeper integration with modern security solutions and automated within an organization’s security operations center for rapid visibility, to continuously assess what is going on, and increase speed to resolution. Risk comes from many different angles; to be effective, risk insight must be more than an entry on an Excel spreadsheet. The transformation of risk insight into policy enforcement in real-time is an evolution for most companies, and it is one that must be realized for IAM programs to deliver more value to the business.

The End of the Password – How to Really Protect Digital Identity
Nov 13, 2018

In the digitalized world, passwords are not sufficient anymore to protect digital logins and transactions. What’s even worse: In 81 percent of all cases, they are the main reason for a hack. Once a password is stolen, it opens the doors to fraudulent use and data theft. Furthermore, since most consumers link their online accounts at Amazon, eBay or Twitter to their Facebook or Google account, attackers only have to hack one password in order to gain access to the entire range of applications. This also enables them to easily compromise the complete digital identity of a user. All these examples show, that passwords are outdated. Their single application for the protection of digital identities is not only careless, but very harmful. However, there is a remedy, which is reliable and widely available today: the 2- or multi-factor authentication (2FA/MFA). Providers of online portals and services can offer their users a broad range of easy-to-use tokens, which relieve consumers of the burden to remember another password – from push tokens that only have to be confirmed by tapping the “OK” field on the smartphone’s touchscreen to scanning a QR code with the smartphone’s camera. In his presentation, Dr. Amir Alsbih explains the latest challenges and solutions in the protection of digital identities and illustrates how consumers can benefit of new MFA technologies.

The Year of Connected Identity: Bringing it all Back Home
May 09, 2023

Cybersecurity practitioners agree that Identity is now at the heart of everything we do.  A variety of inescapable forces have brought us to this point and our success in the next years depends critically on how well we exploit the strategically placed Identity center piece.  Rising to this challenge requires our accumulated business analysis and deployment experience as well as the power of modern Identity platforms.  Critical to realizing this vision is an integrated set of connected identity services that communicate seamlessly within the identity fabric but also across the wider Cyber security ecosystem. One Identity lives and breathes connected Identity, and we are happy to share our experience helping organizations achieve value from connected identity security models.  Whether you are struggling to integrate your existing Identity silos, wondering what Zero Trust means for identity or looking to new Identity services like PBAC and decentralized identity, One Identity's innovative approach and design patterns shared in this session will be of interest.

  • Connect your Identity services to each other
  • Connect your Identity Services to key systems and platforms
  • Exploit platform capabilities to ease integration
  • Go beyond point to point integrations...aim for High Value, Highly Secure Solutions
