Advancing Privileged Access Management (PAM) to Address Modern Business Requirements

Security breaches of privileged accounts can be catastrophic to any business by allowing bad actors unfettered access to the company’s most sensitive data and IT systems. Related vulnerabilities have accelerated in recent years due to increased IT infrastructure complexities and broad distribution of business-critical services. To assist organizations with identifying the most effective methods for managing privileged access, Hitachi ID sponsored EMA's primary, survey-based research into the real-world requirements, challenges, and management techniques employed for securing privileged access.

Higher Education IT Leaders are Looking to Complement Access Governance with Automation

As budgets continue to be in flux, and IT and security teams must reduce risk using fewer resources, automation - a key business enabler - is becoming paramount. This 2020 survey from Hitachi ID and Pulse of 100 Higher Education IT Executives uncovers the discrepancy between the IAM processes currently in place and what best practises truly are-especially when it comes to the benefits of IAM automation.

How Security and Identity Fabrics Work to Help Improve Security

Many organizations struggle or even fail because they overcomplicate the implementation and extension of their cybersecurity toolset. Most do not have a central approach on security, and often use a set of tools that are not well-integrated with each other.

Fragmented IAM Must Come Together To Solve New Challenges

Remote workforces, hybrid infrastructures, elevated access requirements and dynamic business models challenge established IAM practices. Organizations will be better positioned to deal with these trends when fragmented IAM value chains work together for a secure posture and effective administration. We will examine the impact of these key trends and how interconnected IAM systems are better positioned to address these challenges.

5 Questions Every CIO Must Answer in the Coronavirus Age

Everything is different now, and there's no telling when employees will be back in the office, if ever. Capital One doesn't expect to bring employees back until after Labor Day. Amazon has extended its work from home policy to October. Facebook and Google will allow employees to work from home through the end of 2020. Shopify has closed all offices until at least 2021 with all employees working from home. Twitter employees never have to return to the office if they don't want to. These changes come with new challenges for IT. Some of them you've encountered already. Others are issues to anticipate and prepare for. Then there are the steps you might have overlooked in the scramble to fully enable remote work for your employees. Now is the time to strengthen your organization's security. Let's look at five questions every CIO should be asking right now.

Dealing with Identity Management challenges within the Covid-19 crisis

2020 has presented many challenges to many companies -- from mass furloughing for some businesses, to mass hiring for others. Workforces are struggling to adapt to new work-from-home mandates, and companies are ill-prepared to enable these new access demands. Financial services companies in particular are struggling to deal with a multitude of remote authentication related challenges. Hitachi ID will offer suggestions on how companies can use Identity Management and Privileged Access Management to secure access control for employees and keep businesses safe from potential breaches.

Which Comes First Identity Automation or Governance

Organizations that want to mitigate risk need identity and access management. It must become an integral part of the company, touching everyone and everything. IAM provides a strong rules platform that will increase worker productivity while improving security. Identity Management is key to ensure employees are both empowered to deliver value and prevent damage to the business's reputation, security, or bottom line. When getting started with IAM, companies will need to decide whether to begin with automation or governance first. This webinar will explore both approaches and make a case for which should come first.

Privileged Access in the Healthcare Market

An essential tool in the effort to secure access to critical healthcare systems is privileged access management. With this, administrative and other accounts with elevated privileges have their passwords periodically randomized. Multi-factor authentication (MFA), robust authorization policies and access audit logs ensure that access is business-appropriate and users are accountable for their actions.

Achieving Quick Wins in IAM projects

Many IAM projects struggle or even fail because demonstrating their benefit takes too long. Quick-wins that are visible to the end users are a key success factor for any IAM program. However, just showing quick-wins is not sufficient, unless there is a stable foundation for IAM delivered as result of the IAM project. Thus, building on an integrated suite that enables quick-wins through its features is a good approach for IAM projects.

Privileged Access in and for the Cloud

Privileged access management (PAM) systems are increasingly being used to great effect in securing cloud infrastructure and SaaS environments. With the popularity and affordability of cloud computing environments, organizations can now increase the value and lower the operating cost of PAM systems. This session will explore the various aspects of Cloud and PAM and provide concrete recommendations to implement them.

Secure the Cloud: How to Lock Down Access to SaaS and IaaS

As organizations move their application inventory out of private data centers to public cloud providers, login pages are exposed to public URLs. This eliminates the network perimeter as a first line of defense and dramatically increases the set of possible attackers. At the same time, organizations are subject to increasing regulatory and audit requirements regarding privacy protection and governance. To address the increased risk of public access to critical systems and applications, organizations must deploy multi-factor authentication, robust access governance and control over privileged accounts. This webinar will discuss implementation of these measures.
