Tuesday November 20, 2018 the second edition of the Identity & Access Management Conference will take place in Conference Center De Montil in Affligem, nearby Bruxelles. The congress focuses on a senior level audience of end users (senior managers and specialists) who want to stay up to date on relevant trends and developments and know the importance of ongoing investment in IAM solutions. LSEC has always been a strategic partner to Heliview and is happy to be doing this again in 2018 for its Annual Conference
IAM is too often seen as a technical topic that cost organisations only money… The reverse is true, it should be seen as a key enabler! Of course there is IAM purely for security and compliance reasons (which we will certainly not forget during our conference). However, organisations that master e-Identities can provide controlled access to their services/data in a controlled way. Think eg about the booming of egov-applications following the birth of the Belgian eID-card or about the large number of applications that allow you to log on with your facebook- or google-identity.
How to provide access to an ever increasing number of online applications in a distributed and cloud-based environment? Luckily we now have solutions like federation, single-sign-on and trusted online e-Identities. Think about eg ITSME at a Belgian-level (and probably others following soon), as well as multiple European Member States scramble to get their electronic Identity certified/notified so that it can be used and must be recognized across borders.
If that is not enough we are now facing the booming of the API-economy and the integration of services via APIs. This in combination with GDPR poses the additional challenge that organisations must be able to ensure only authorized /consented access is being given… forcing organisations to integrate access controls into their APIs.
In addition to all the above additional aspects come to play like role management, IAM governance, auditing/attestations, data loss prevention, etc.....Again, this year’s conference promises to be very rich in content and topics to discuss about.
