Panel | The direction and evolution of access control and identity management

In 2021’s increasingly digital world, organizations will need to remain vigilant. As remote work continues for at least several more months, we can be sure that threat actors will continue to adapt their tactics to capitalize on employees working remotely. Without a clearly defined corporate perimeter, identity will be more important than ever when it comes to protecting data and devices from sophisticated phishing attempts, data breaches, or ransomware. IT teams will be looking to implement even more robust identity and access strategies, from single sign-on to multi-factor authentication to password management and more. Streamlining logins will be more important than ever, along with educating employees to work together to avoid potential risks. Join this panel discussion for an SAP, consultant, and customer view of the direction and evolution of access control and identity management. Learn best practices for fortifying your organization in 2021 and beyond to ensure that the right people are accessing the right information.
