Reducing Your Attack Surface – An Identity Management Perspective presented at CISOdenver 2016

by Jd Sherry, John Everson, Sam Masiello,

Summary : The significant increase in the use of distributed applications running in the enterprise — in the cloud and on mobile devices — has expanded the enterprise’s attack surface. Without appropriate planning, the identity services associated with these applications can become part of the problem rather than part of the solution. As CXOs look to protect their organization and end users from attacks, they must manage authentication, authorization and access policies to reduce overall risk. This boardroom will discuss a modern approach to identity infrastructure that embraces identity standards at its core and offers CXOs a simple, modular and scalable blueprint for success.
