Addressing the Identity Risk Factor in the Age of 'Need It Now'
Addressing the Identity Risk Factor in the Age of 'Need It Now'

In today's digital world, boundaries are blurring. Driven by "need it now" business demands, cloud applications are surfacing in business environments everywhere, often with little or no IT involvement. We're allowing access to a growing and dynamic user population that includes not only employees but partners, customers, channels and contractors. And, while the always-on mobile and BYOD landscape offers much-needed convenience for users, it further blurs personal and corporate access boundaries. Ultimately, we need to find a way to embrace today's boundaryless business world, while maintaining security confidence, ensuring that we meet increasing compliance demands, and doing so in a way that's completely seamless and easy for our users.

Is this mission impossible? One might think so, especially as the business and IT landscapes continue to evolve, hosting a proliferation of access points, applications and islands of identity. IT has less and less centralized control and visibility and the bad guys have more opportunities to gain unauthorized access through those access blind spots of ours. Only by effectively getting a grasp on our identity risks can we gain a sense of identity and access assurance. But, what are those risks and how do we get ahead of them to mitigate the risks of any breaches, audit failures and business slowdowns?

Register for our upcoming webinar with Jim Ducharme, VP of Identity Products at RSA, where you will learn how to:

  • Overcome the challenges associated with managing access and identity risk;
  • Effectively assess identity risks at your organization;
  • Maintain security without adding increased burdens on the user population; and
  • Apply automated controls that can more effectively lower risk of audit failure or data breach.
