Best Practices for IAM Assessments, Blueprints & Roadmaps

Todd Rossin, CEO/Chief Strategist, IDMWORKS

Organizations process and store huge volumes of sensitive information that belong to their customers and employees – from financial information to medical records to personal identifiers, like social security numbers and birthdates.

Inadequate controls in IAM processes and technology can lead to breach, involuntary exposure of this data, and non-compliance issues. But you cannot correct what you don’t know, so the first step in any IAM program is Assessment.

IDMWORKS will address the most common questions around IAM Assessments & Roadmaps – Why Should We Assess? What Should We Assess? and When Should We Reassess?

Similarity Cracks the code on Black Box AI with Explainable Machine Learning in Identity Management

David Jakopac,Chief Customer Officer and Data Scientist, simMachines

Imagine it’s January in Chicago and you have a meeting at 9:00 am downtown and when you turn the ignition to start your car the “Check Engine” light comes on. A series of questions comes to mind: Why? Where is the problem? How urgent is the problem? What needs to be fixed? and How much time do I have? Wouldn’t it be great if your car console could tell you if the car is safe to drive and what the problem was? This is exactly what Explainable Machine Learning does. It explains the “Why.” In Identity Management there are many “Check Engine” light moments, such as identity anomaly detection, account vulnerability detection, identity reconciliation, access rule/role rationalization, GDPR transparency, stack overflows, and many others that can be resolved with similarity and explainable ML. Identity Management with Explainable AI gives organizations a lens to classify and identify their IDM challenges.

Seamless Migration from Legacy IAM System

Todd Rossin, CEO/Chief Strategist, IDMWORKS

As legacy IAM solutions persist in the market there is a lot of anxiety among customers as to whether their current IAM tools are, or will remain, sustainable. The biggest question that arises is how to migrate from the current, legacy, vendor solution into a new, modern, vendor solution. In order to do this we must have a plan and a proper strategy.

3 Steps for Designing a Cloud IAM Blueprint

Todd Rossin, CEO/Chief Strategist, IDMWORKS

Organizations have a growing need to move applications to the cloud, but the enterprise has considerations that need to be taken into account before, during and after making the move.

Successful migrations to the cloud require proper planning and analysis to determine which applications should be moved, the right cloud provider, and the best pricing model, whether you’re considering public, private or hybrid cloud.

We’ll discuss moving to the cloud and what to do, what not to do and how to leverage the power of identity in the process.
