Digital Identity: How Identity Management Protects Your Data and Enables Your Users
The digital “you.” Whether at home, or at work, your digital identity represents your physical persona to the world; you use it to gain access to services, both physical and virtual. At home, “identity theft” can result in financial loss, credit score degradation, social media embarrassment, and, at best, general inconvenience. In an enterprise environment, a single compromised identity is the first step in an incursion with operational, financial, and reputational impacts.
While we implement protective controls across our most relevant threat vectors, the effective management and protection of user identity is often perceived as unachievable or insurmountable. Identity management is a process, one that starts with identifying a user’s privilege and moves through ensuring that those privileges are as limited as possible all while monitoring and protections are implemented in accordance with the risk profile of each user’s role.
In this month’s conference, we will be addressing identity across a spectrum of use cases. We will start at the top with a keynote panel of experts that have employed State-level digital identity strategies to enable rapid and consistent access to constituent-facing services. We will then break out into sessions covering complete identity platforms, privileged access controls, user behavioral analytics, and next generation identity management strategies. Whether you are an analyst looking to centralize your identity programs, or a leader looking for peers to consult on your own identity strategies, this month’s content will have you covered.
