Smart Shopper: IAM products
Speaker: Richard E. Mackey, principal, SystemExperts, ISACA/CISM
One of the most difficult challenges organizations face is managing the identities of employees, customers, partners, and services. Companies invariably find themselves burdened with managing identities from many different internal and external organizations and controlling access to resources these identities use. Historically, companies haven't been motivated to find a centralized solution to this problem. However, with the increased requirements of regulatory compliance like SOX, HIPAA, and GLBA, many organizations have recognized that centralized management of identity and access control is critical to their everyday operations. This session looks at the capabilities of IAM systems and how organizations are using them to meet their requirements.
