Session ONE – Context-aware, Risk-driven and Business-centric Identity and Access Management for the Enterprise
We explore how IAM can become a key enabler of business growth for organisations. Through cross-sector case studies and industry perspectives we charter key IAM imperatives including accountability, transparency, user experience and managing trust, privileges and entitlements. The early morning session will also explore:
- EU Regulations and European-wide Identity Management initiatives
- Why businesses require identity governance
- Examples of successful deployments of comprehensive, customer focused identity management infrastructures
- The impact of identity management investment on top-line revenue
- How to use IAM to achieve business goals and empower digital business
- The changing security landscape (attackers, threats and risks) and disruptive technologies
- Operationalising identity intelligence for efficiency and risk mitigation
- Future trends in the IAM space
Chair’s Opening Address
Keynote Address: Secure Access for Faster, Simpler Government
In this opening session we hear about how one government ministry is applying Identity Life Cycle management to optimise its performance, reduce inefficiencies and deliver better public services.
A Smarter Way to Manage Identity
Organisations are having to provide access for a growing number of identities both within and outside their organisation, without compromising security or exposing sensitive information. This session provides an overview of how one large organisation is achieving the right balance between customer and employee identity management.
Making Identity the Centrepiece of your Security Landscape
The evolving security landscape is forcing organisations to review their IAM strategies. Thinking in terms of defending the organisational perimeter is no longer viable for the connected enterprise. This session explores the coming transition of IAM and its changing role within the cyber-security landscape.
Bolstering Security through Effective Risk Management
Although compliance is still a key driver in IAM initiatives, IAM is evolving into a risk-based discipline with many enterprises focused on entitlement management and enforcement of access controls. Effective IAM systems should be able to identify where an organisation is at risk. If you cannot see risk then you cannot control it.
In this session we explore a risk-driven approach to IAM which takes consideration of: access management policies, consistent application of role/rule-based access, segregation of duties as well as non-technical issues like managing confidential information, employee contractual considerations and data protection aspects of information breaches.
The Business Case for IAM
As European states transition towards information-based economies, intellectual property and trade secrets are critical to the survival of large competitive business. In this morning keynote session, we look to explore the critical tenets of identity management and explore:
- The value proposition of IAM and how can it help to empower business, improve growth and performance
- How businesses can align their strategic business objectives with their risk management metrics and IAM solutions
- IAM essentials – control, accountability, transparency, compliance
- Defining and implementing a IAM & GRC roadmap
- An overview of market drivers, trends and standards
Identity Governance: Securing Privileged Accounts
Privileged accounts have a valid set of credentials which can be used (or misused) to gain access to mission-critical systems and networks. With non-restrictive, elevated levels of access, privileged accounts can evade access controls and can easily be used by attackers or malicious insiders to cause significant damage. In this session we explore how businesses can utilise analytics, among other best practice solutions, to secure privileged accounts and implement processes that mitigate risk, look at the ‘right’ data and not all the data, and meet high stakes compliance requirements.

Meeting Audit and Compliance Needs
We focus on IDM standards, guidelines and procedures as well as on the implementation and governance of these activities with specific reference to audit and compliance needs and challenges.
Trust Based Access Control
Employees require access to sensitive information and critical systems for numerous reasons and levels of trust have to be associated with access control. In this session we consider:
- What trust based access control should look like
- Identifying secure users and behaviours
- Balancing enablement with accountability
- Balancing security with usability – taking account of user experience and needs
