ISMG’s Executive Roundtables focus on specific challenges being faced by information security executives in today’s cybersecurity landscape. Moderated by one of ISMG’s Executive Editors and a guest industry expert, Roundtables give cybersecurity professionals the opportunity to discuss threats and controls with a handful of market leaders in an informal setting, from which you will emerge with new ideas and solutions you can immediately put to work to improve your own organization’s defensive posture.
Managing Access Risk – Controlling the Identity Lifecycle
In the age of cloud and IoT, identity and access management are becoming mission critical for a successful cybersecurity strategy. But visibility, security and governance of all of your users including privileged accounts is an onerous task given today’s connected environment and consequent expanded attack surface. How do you fully manage privileged access in such a complex and increasingly decentralized landscape? How do you deal with regulatory compliance throughout the customer lifecycle as roles and privileges change over time?
If you’re looking for new answers to these questions, then join ISMG’s Tom Field for an exclusive roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on how they have been able to help their organizations rethink their own identity and access management strategy.
Discussion topics will include:
- Why is provisioning and de-provisioning identities so problematic today?
- What are the repercussions of users being over privileged?
- How do you articulate the need for identity management tools to C-level executives?
- How do you encourage buy in from employees to adopt secure identity and access management policies?
- How can technology help mitigate identity risk better?
Joining Tom to provide expert insight and case studies is Mike Kiser, Architect and Evangelist, Office of the CTO, for SailPoint and Trey Gannon, Cybersecurity & Privacy Partner for PwC.
