IDAM in the Cloud: Old Battles in New Places
Tuesday, August 22, 2017 10:00am to 3:00pm at InterContinental Los Angeles Century City
At the intersection of organizational risk and user experience, identity and access management (IDAM) is a longstanding IT challenge that is equal parts technology and human nature. Enter the cloud. Add an externalized user presence with a changing array of devices, apps, and services and the degree of difficulty factor grows exponentially. For security professionals fighting old battles in different places, on different form factors, and at a lightning pace of change who ask:
"Here’s what we’ve been doing, but does it work in the cloud?”
This Symposium is for you.
Led by security practitioner Dave Shackleford (founder of Voodoo Security and high-energy IANS faculty lead), this interactive 5 hour event is designed to address IDAM in the cloud. It combines presentation, discussion, and peer conversation in an environment that is both fast-paced and casual.
- Securing identities of different user groups and device types in various cloud service environments
- Practical next steps to mature your approach
- Making the leap from on-prem solutions to IDaaS solutions
- Vendor landscape – MFA and SSO, IDaaS, and more
- Authentication, Authorization, and Role-based Access in the Cloud
- Working with development and engineering teams to integrate SAML and oAuth
The objective is for participants to leave with a strategy for assessing their current cloud IAM strategy, as well as learn practical tips on providers and how best to work with them. You’ll also leave with new and renewed peer contacts in your area. Our hope is that this Symposium’s value brings us to mind when participants face infosec opportunities and challenges in the future.
This Symposium is designed with CISOs, security architects, and IDAM leaders in mind. Security practitioners and risk managers of all types are also welcome to attend.
This event is for IANS clients and invited guests — there is no vendor sponsorship or presence.
