Today’s digital threat landscape allows little room for complacency in securing entry points and data assets in large enterprise and government. Globally, the IAM landscape is set to grow from just over $5 billion in 2013 to $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.
Whitehall Media’s prestigious 10th biannual IDM event will explore the coming transition of IAM from traditional IT infrastructure to a critical business intelligence resource. This must-attend event will feature keynote presentations and interactive seminar sessions from the leading Identirati brains who will review the latest, and hottest, trends in the IAM sector.
We invite senior decision makers responsible for creating, refining and innovating upon the IAM programs at their respective organisations.
