CIAM Vs. IAM: Ensuring a Secure Digital Strategy
Scott Ferguson – Executive Editor, ISMG / Shaun Knoll – Sr. Director of Solutions Engineering, Akamai
Ensuring a digital identity is a key component to building and maintaining an organization’s digital transformation strategy. The right customer identity and access management strategy will not only ensure that personal data remains safe, but that companies can also tap into this information to understand consumer behavior and develop better ways to serve their needs.
CIAM, however, is not the same as traditional enterprise or workforce IAM. While IAM focuses on employees and business partners so they can access essential systems and apps, CIAM requires a different approach. It requires dedicated technology that will not only protect customer data, but also handle the thousands, and sometimes, millions of identities that an organization processes every day.
What are the best ways to establish CIAM within an organization? What is the biggest difference between IAM and CIAM? How can the right approach to CIAM eliminate identity theft and ensure customer data remains secure? How can organizations securely leverage CIAM to gain greater insights into customer behavior?
Please join ISMG’s Scott Ferguson for an exclusive roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on the differences between CIAM and IAM.
Discussion topics will include:
- What are the most significant differences between CIAM and IAM?
- Why do organizations need to treat CIAM separately?
- What are the best practices organizations can develop to protect and secure customer data?
Joining Scott to provide expert insight and case studies is Shaun Knoll, Senior Director of Solutions Engineering at Akamai.
