Panel: Exploring Identity Access Management

Despite the best efforts of cyber security professionals to update systems and protect against vulnerabilities, if access to these systems is not managed correctly, attackers could gain access resulting in costly data breaches.  Hence identity & access management (IAM) is a key component of modern cyber security planning and implementation. Controlling the use and issuance of administrative passwords in key.  This panel will analyse the following:

  • What factors need to be considered when implementing IAM systems?
  • The role will technologies like Blockchain, and biometrics have in IAM?
  • How important is IAM for cloud based systems, and what do security professionals have to consider differently?
