Today’s connected enterprise allows little room for complacency in securing entry points and data assets. Globally the IAM landscape is set to grow from just over $5 billion in 2013 10.39 billion by 2018 as organisations are ever-pressed to define secure access control and what users with certain devices can and cannot do on the corporate network.
The IAM sector is poised for major growth and transformation as businesses of all sizes look to develop strategies that are aligned to the needs of their business but also consider people, processes and technology issues. Updating the way IDM is approached will necessitate moving beyond usernames and passwords towards an approach that is able to analyse and correlate our numerous identities and roles to efficiently enforce the right level of authentication and authorization for a wide variety of access patterns.
Whitehall Media’s 12th biannual IDM event will bring together hundreds of senior IAM thought leaders and innovators to discuss and shape the future of secure, risk-driven and business-centric IAM. The event will identify new frontiers and opportunities, discuss ways to transform IAM into an actionable critical business resource and review the latest trends and technologies shaping the IAM sector to help delegates stay ahead of the curve.
