Moving Beyond Passwords to Delight and Secure Users

Passwords have been a constant throughout the internet era. As we’ve moved from desktops to smartphones, from on-premises infrastructure to cloud services, we’ve all relied on passwords to access and safeguard our data and resources across the applications we use on a daily basis.

But in this new digital age where data breaches are rampant, passwords are no longer good enough. Not only are they insecure, they are expensive and offer a poor user experience. Fortunately, there’s a better way to protect your applications and stop account takeover incidents.

In this session, we’ll discuss:

  • The benefits of passwordless authentication
  • Explain how eliminating the password can help improve user experience, admin visibility and control, and scalability
  • Key considerations and first steps as you embark on your passwordless journey

Solving the Identity Crisis: IDaaS Explained

As businesses’ dependency on cloud and mobile technologies grows, traditional network boundaries and legacy identity and access management solutions are becoming increasingly redundant. With greater amounts of sensitive data in their hands, the need to secure businesses from potential breaches has never been more pressing.

Identity as a Service (IDaaS) describes any cloud-based service facilitating secure access to data - including single sign-on, authentication and access controls. With a number of different options to choose from, picking the right modern identity solution for your business in 2021 is no easy feat.

In the first episode of The Future of Identity Management, identity experts and Okta are diving deep into the world of IDaaS and looking at why identity has become such a prevalent issue for business leaders.

Join us to discover:

  • What identity is, why it’s important, and how it’s evolved in recent years
  • How IDaaS can help organizations meet their business goals
  • What the main components of modern identity are
  • Why businesses should invest in modern identity strategy

2021 Higher Education CIO Roundtable

Institutional leaders often feel the pressures of implementing campus-wide digital transformation initiatives and strategies. Investing in technologies that not only reduce long term costs, but also provide campus users with exceptional experiences without compromising security measures are the key to any strategic plan. Not to mention balancing campus technological shifts, like moving to the cloud, have made it possible for leaders to step away from the technical weeds and build teams that can focus on business and mission value. Often at the center of these digital transformation considerations is an Identity and Access Management strategy to support a user-centric ecosystem.

Join us for an exclusive roundtable with higher education leaders to discuss:

  • Moving to the cloud
  • Security and Zero Trust
  • User experiences and lifecycle management
  • Lessons learned and advice to other leaders pursuing similar goals

Dark Reading: Finding and Stopping Enterprise Data Breaches

It’s the nightmare of every cybersecurity professional. Not only have cybercriminals breached your enterprise’s IT defenses and compromised critical data, but it wasn’t your team that discovered the compromise. Not only did you fail to keep the attacker out – you failed to detect the breach when it happened.

A new virtual event is designed to help you prevent that nightmare from happening to you. Finding and Stopping Enterprise Data Breaches -- a free, all-day online conference produced by the editors of Dark Reading -- offers a look at some of the latest and most effective methods for detecting threats and compromises, as well as the key steps you should take to mitigate them. You’ll get a look at the next wave of threat detection tools and practices, as well as expert advice and recommendations on how to respond to a data breach. Top security experts and researchers will discuss ways to discover sophisticated and targeted exploits, even when they are well obfuscated. Best of all, you’ll get insight on what to do when you’ve discovered those compromises, including how to limit their impact and when to contact law enforcement.

  • Among the topics that will be covered at Finding and Stopping Enterprise Data Breaches:
  • A look at some of the latest tools and practices for detecting a compromise, including EDR and xDR
  • Insight on how your organization can use next-generation technologies such as AI and machine learning to uncover sophisticated attacks
  • Methods for analyzing system logs and threat intelligence to help detect hidden attacks
  • Critical actions to take when you suspect your data has been compromised - Key steps to mitigate a compromise and limit its impact
