Cloud Security & Privacy Social

Join Steve Tout and Vishal Amin for an intimate and honest look at how governments and companies are failing its citizens, customers and employees and the impact it has on lives and the bottom line.

We live in a world full of uncertainties and wake up to new data breaches on a daily basis. As applications and data proliferate in a cloud and mobile world, Identity and Access Management (IAM) must deliver more than ever, faster than ever, for businesses to succeed at building and maintaining trusted relationships and delighting customers at every interaction. We must get to a place where risk informs identity services and authorization decisions in real-time to avoid our companies from being the next news headline.

Throughout the evening, you will hear about recent trends and pragmatic steps you can take that will help take your organization’s security posture and risk management program to the next level.

  • A personal story about the cost of a data breach
  • The importance of security and accepting the human element at every turn
  • High performance decision making in the midst of uncertainty and chaos
  • Enhancing the privacy and security of sensitive data with integrated identity & access management
  • Moving beyond IT “problem solving” to innovation and transformation
