Forum21 Europe

Where in 2021 are we placing our trust?

Wednesday 23rd June 2021

Why Attend

​Trust is both a basic survival mechanism and the oil that keeps societies moving. At Okta we are stewards of trust, who believe in Zero Trust security, not a zero trust society. It’s heartening to see that the COVID pandemic has increased levels of trust across Europe. But equally we know that what and who, individuals and organisations place their trust in, can fluctuate rapidly.


​​So, in 2021 where are we placing our trust? How can we quickly rebuild trust when it’s been diminished? And how can trust continue to maintain the bridges across a global society? ​


Okta’s Forum21 Europe gathers together respected professionals from the IT, Security and Identity and Access Management communities to exchange ​business-critical ideas, on how trust can keep the wheels of business and society turning; today, tomorrow and into the future. ​


​At a time of unprecedented change and enforced physical isolation, it’s a welcome chance to compare strategies that enable trust within your organisation and beyond, to your customers and business partners. An opportunity, we trust you’ll agree, that should not be missed.

Meeting the Demands of the Modern Workforce

Driven by the response to the global pandemic, modern European workforces have experienced change on an unseen scale. Notions of work being an activity more than a location have solidified into a new reality. This change has fuelled discussions around all aspects of trust and the workforce. For both employers and employees, this new workforce freedom comes with greater responsibilities.

The New Security Culture

A new workforce culture demands a new security culture to enable it to happen. Digital trust is the new oil in the workforce productivity engine. With threat levels mirroring opportunity, the new threat landscape is breaking all records.

Modernising Digital Experiences for Customer Loyalty

Loyalty is a relative term when it comes to customers. But what we can be certain of is that great customer experience creates both trust and increases the chance of renewed custom. Expectations of frictionless, seamless customer experiences transcend sectors and must be balanced with security, or customer trust can be lost overnight.

Future Ready Hybrid IT

Trust in cloud technologies has never been higher, but the reality for most enterprises is that Hybrid IT is the foreseeable future. Whether for compliance or practical reasons, many organisations are now tackling the challenge of managing identity across Hybrid IT.
