Quo Vadis Identity: Weaving the Identity Fabric for the Future of your Enterprise

Digital identities are core element of any digital transformation. Letting the customer into your enterprise to manage processes and information related to him means having a secure and adaptive system in place to manage identities and their access rights. Setting up an Identity Fabric delivering identity services to the new digital business, will enable you to take the lead and strengthen your innovative power. EIC 2020 will help you define a step-by-step approach to migrate from your legacy IAM to a future-proof Identity Fabric.  

Identity Fabrics &

Identity API Platforms

New digital business services change the way IAM needs to be done. To be successful, companies need a strong digital identity backend that delivers all identity services required by new digital business. KC Principal Analyst Martin Kuppinger calls such backend the “Identity Fabrics”, which are more than identity API platforms, both regarding capabilities and interfaces. This shift to API-based access in consequence of the digital transformation requirements changes IAM and puts the API capabilities at the center. 

AI, Digital ID, Cybersecurity: Re-Defining Leadership in a Post Digital Society  

There is no doubt that artificial intelligence (AI) can enhance identity and access management (IAM) and help protect IT networks from future security breaches. While IAM plays a huge role in mitigating data breaches and additional cyber risks, AI offers more efficient and accurate processes by automating and accelerating tasks. Exploring innovative solutions and ways of applying new technologies to develop novel forms of digital ID is the key to successful transformation and leadership. 

Top Trends in Identity &

Access Management (IAM) and

AI-powered Cybersecurity

that Impact your Infrastructure 

Utilizing AI to defend yourself from attackers and solidify your surroundings becomes increasingly crucial. It is important to better understand where AI comes into play in the industry, what tangible results does it have and how to leverage its extensive potential. Dynamism in the infrastructure and IoT growth point out on the prominence of implementing better security solutions. From biometrics to context-based identity and artificial intelligence, IAM will continue to maintain its importance and grow in scope and scale. 

Boot Camps & Tool Kits

Supporting your AI Implementation Program 

Solid knowledge, awareness and strategic preparation are the basic steps toward the adoption of AI features in your own projects and applications. Extensive and rigorous content enables you to boost your understanding and be ready to drive your company’s digital transformation. EIC will offer high impact boot camps leaving you fully equipped with a broad range of useful tools to incorporate into your own business strategy. Helping you navigate through the AI landscape to learn how to spot business opportunities and what exactly is needed for strategic adoption and implementation of artificial intelligence.  

Balancing User Experience & Security through Customer Identity & Access Management 

For organizations that want to ensure safe and efficient access to their services, effective identity and access management solutions are essential. But, ensuring maximum security and maintaining a smooth user experience is a challenge. More we move into the digital environment, the more each company must focus on these aspects and construct the IAM programs with the consumers in mind. With the changing regulatory environment, this is further complicated. Sharing valuable insights and experience at EIC 2020 in Munich. 

Managing

Non-Human Identities

The number of non-human identities is increasing dramatically. The authentication procedure of machine identities is highly automated with lower security than for human authentication. This poses a security risk to an enterprise network and can lead to breaches, if not treated with adequate care. Therefore, the good enterprise IAM hygiene must cover identities of device accounts and not only those belonging to humans. Thorough understanding of the risks associated with non-human identities is essential for fully secure access.  

Using Blockchain for

Identities - Latest Trends 

Managing digital identities and being in control of your own data. Blockchain technology is promising to solve this challenge by providing a decentralized approach which offers more control and security to the challenge of digital identities. Blockchain makes self-sovereign identities (SSIs) possible, and concepts, as well as number of commercial products, are being offered on the market already. It remains to be seen how scalability, and future regulations affect wider adoption of blockchain technology.  

Defining an Effective Cybersecurity Strategy that protects your Digital Enterprise Against Cyber Risk 

Data is the core asset of the digital enterprise and is essential for its’ growth. But the digitalization brings with itself new challenges, like novel cyber threats. Thousands of ransomware incidents occur daily costing companies and government entities billions of dollars. It is essential for the digital enterprise to define an effective cybersecurity strategy and know the limits of existing cyber-defenses. Only then the companies can enable frictionless customer experience, develop new products avoiding unnecessary risks.  

Cloud Strategy

Roadmap 

Enterprises are utilizing cloud capabilities in order to reduce their costs, bring speed, scalability and accuracy to their business solutions. For companies moving to a cloud strategy, having a roadmap is essential and the move must be aligned with the overall business strategy. Despite the above-mentioned potential benefits, user experience, specific cost, governance and security must be considered. Asking the right questions and having a clear direction will ensure that your business gains maximum benefit from the move.  

Scale, Manage, Consolidate, Integrate:

Public & On-Premise Cloud,

Core IT Hosting, Edge IoT 

Most enterprises are utilizing both public and on-premise cloud infrastructures and get the benefit of both worlds. But challenges remain such as migration, integration, security and effective management. Furthermore, edge computing combines novel data processing capabilities with performing rapid data analysis on the cloud. Maintaining this complex architecture requires thorough checks of security and regulatory. Having a clear understanding of those is central to success of today’s digital enterprise.
