Abstract: Identity is the new perimeter. Identity and access management (IAM) emerged as the focal point of cyber security during the COVID-19 pandemic, where an individual’s identity is transmitted as networks become obsolete. The increased emphasis on IAM has resulted in increased vulnerabilities, threats, and risks, thus placing IAM in the spotlight. IAM focuses on access management, identity governance, single sign-on, and privileged access management and is needed by enterprises everywhere to improve user provisioning and managing their lifecycle. This discussion will focus on trends in IAM, where the focus is no longer on user
identities but also machine/device identities as IoT proliferation increases. IAM solutions are increasingly integrated, as converged IAM platforms are developed. This discussion will feature various aspects of IAM for the upcoming years, careers in IAM, and how you can get involved and build a career in this space.
- Identity and Remote Work
- IAM ecosystem and provisioning and cyber insurance
- IAM and user experience
- Identities – user/machine and IoT
