Identity, Access, Governance, and Security in a Hybrid Environment

The traditional perimeter is now inclusive of identity security. With identity playing a much bigger role in security it’s important to have tools and procedures that align with an identity-driven security strategy. In this session, OCG CTO James Cowling will take a look at leveraging machine learning, massive signal collection, conditional access, data protection, and identity governance and discuss how these technologies are affecting business.

Hey IT, I Shrunk the Network Perimeter

Many companies deal with a dispersed workforce, and managing everyone’s devices and data is a complex, ever-changing goal. In this session, OCG Principal Architect Mark Riley will discuss protecting data outside the classic network perimeter. He’ll cover mobility and security features of Windows 10, including Windows Information Protection, Azure Active Directory Domain Join, Risk-based Authentication, and Conditional Access. With these new technologies, Microsoft provides a solution for mobile devices, be they MacOS, iPhones/iPads, Android phones/tablets, or any type of Windows device. In addition to securing the device, Mark will look at securing access to the data and methods of protecting the data itself once on the device.

Identity Assurance, Passwords, and You

Accessing your applications will look very different in the future. Static, user-selected passwords are on the way out; analytics, context and behavioral characteristics of users are replacing them. It’s AI vs. the AI the bad guys will try to reproduce. In this informative, provocative session, Crossmatch’s Vito Fabbrizio – SVP, Product Management – will walk through today’s challenges and explains how recent innovations in this space will allow us to move away from 20th century password systems to a more deterministic and secure identity future.

Governance Automation for On-Premises and Cloud

As more and more cloud systems are turned on by organizations, the importance of data and access governance is increasing. In this session presented by OCG CEO Hugh Simpson-Wells, learn about some of the governance strategies available to your organization, including attestation of permissions, segregation of duties, licensing management, role-based access control including attribute-based management, machine learning, and risk analytics.

The Secure Identity Roadmap

In the last decade, identity and access management and its security implications have changed greatly. In this session, hear from Microsoft experts about what the future holds for identity and security and what your organization can do to prepare.
