Identity & Access Management
Security Congress Abstract
We once lived in a world where Active Directory was the single source of truth for all IAM. Yet today modern, technology-focused organizations adopt disparate, cloud-based, open-source or Unix-based systems and struggle to keep the ever-growing set of systems under their IAM umbrella. At the same time, we use inefficient processes for managing access, especially role-based access controls.
This talk will share the presenter’s experiences and learnings from building a modern, scalable and automated IAM platform at three very different companies: one of Australia’s largest financial institutions; a rapidly growing cloud technology company; and a new startup. The focus will be on capabilities, not specific software or vendors; the pitfalls to avoid; and a framework for designing a solution which can meet different organizations' technologies or requirements.
