Beyond IAM: Achieving true identity security

On-Demand Webcast|1 hour

Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions are no longer just ways to provide easy workforce access to applications, but critical tools in security and zero trust network access, creating the first line of defense against malicious actors and insider threats. 
In this panel discussion, experts from CyberRisk Alliance and CyberArk will share their insights into trends in this evolution, as well as the best practices to leverage IAM solutions as a strategic security asset to protect organizations from cyberattacks, data breaches, and other threats. They will discuss the challenges and opportunities of IAM in the era of cloud, mobile, and social technologies, as well as the emerging trends and innovations in the field. Discussion points:

  • The new definition of privilege: How users traverse the risk spectrum throughout the day, depending on the tools they use and the actions they take.  This makes everyone a possible privileged user at any time. 
  • Complexities of securing a hybrid workforce: The benefits of applying controls once reserved for the most privileged users but doing it in a way that balances security with productivity.
  • Multifactor authentication (MFA) can be one of the strongest tools against malicious behavior.  But it’s shocking how many organizations deploy the weakest possible utilization of this tool, or don’t use it across their environment.  Explore how employing modern MFA, including passwordless, and incorporating user behavior analytics and adaptive MFA can be a game changer in shutting down bad actors. 
  • Employees understandably look for the easy button. That means reusing passwords and adopting consumer-focused tools to manage those weak or repurposed passwords.  This introduces unintended risk.  How should IT and security leaders consider managing applications and tools that require a single username and password, thus brought under the umbrella of single sign-on (SSO) and MFA? 
  • The third-party conundrum: We all need to provide access
