Making the Case for Authentication as a Platform
As organizations adopt advanced authentication practices, it’s critical to consider the varied modalities your organization requires. The “solution” should not be one that’s built from a collection of point solutions. For this reason, many businesses are turning to authentication solutions that are built as a platform. This holistic solution is accommodating to different modalities, applications and form factors. It can also control the authentication and credential management lifecycle. In this session, the experts from HID® Global will:
- Address the most common challenges and concerns for enterprise organizations attempting to streamline authentication
- Detail the intricacies of the authentication lifecycle
- Help you identify what to look for in an authentication platform that meets your organization’s needs

The Growing Need for Identity & Access Management to Support Digital Business Initiatives
Rational Approach to Zero Trust
Security vendors and analysts are pushing the “zero trust” message – but zero trust is not a product that can be bought. It is an approach to security policy and processes. This brief talk discusses the “low hanging fruit” in applying zero trust principles to an organization’s security program.
Destructive Objects: The New Attack Vector
Files and destructive objects are emerging as a significant new attack vector, disrupting businesses’ efforts to bring products and services online via new web and mobile applications. These new digital processes rely on the creation, transfer, and sharing of rich content as files which transport this data to deliver the right experience to the recipient. However, these same files can be leveraged by attackers by inserting malware into these binary objects, which often go undetected thereby introducing significant risk to the business.
In this session, we’ll discuss:
• What are destructive objects and why are they a concern to your business, your digital ecosystem, and subsequently your employees, partners, and customers
• How are these files impacting organizations, including your digital experience, SOC performance, and software supply chains
• How is explainable threat intelligence improving detection rates, accelerating response times, and creating greater SOC and DevOps efficiencies
