The evolution continues- calling all presenters!

Andi Hindle | Identiverse Content Chair

In case you missed the news at Cloud Identity Summit in June, we announced that CIS would be renamed to Identiverse. But with the name change, we’re keeping the core qualities of CIS intact: the family program, the great networking opportunities, the awesome parties, and—of course—the highest-quality speakers covering the most relevant topics in identity.

How Do Security Pros Understand Privacy?

Steve Wilson | Constellation Research

Privacy is contentious today. Some say the information age has brought real changes to privacy norms. With so much private data leaking through breaches, accidents and digital business practices, it’s often said that ‘the genie is out of the bottle’. Many think privacy has become hopeless. Yet in Europe and many jurisdictions, privacy rights have […]

It’s Time for the Identity Ecosystem to Grow Up

Andrew Nash

Over the last 15 years, we’ve seen an enormous amount of great work go into designing modern identity systems—from SAML V1 kicking off the concept of identity federations to OpenID Connect and OAuth. Today, we’re still largely focused on how identities are created, verified (at your favorite assurance level) and authenticated—or if you’re really adventurous, […]

Identity is Transforming Financial Services

Emma Lindley | CEO & Founder at Innovate Identity

Digitalisation is changing the financial services world at an unprecedented rate. This change is being driven from top down regulations and directives such as  the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the UK’s Open Banking regulation, the EU’s revised Payment Service Directive (PSD2) and the EU’s 4th Anti-Money Laundering Directive (4AMLD). It also being influenced […]

Scattered Clouds: A Global Identity Infrastructure

Will Rose | Netflix, Inc.

It is no industry secret that Netflix moved early and earnestly to build a global streaming platform on top of Amazon’s public cloud infrastructure. It’s a lesser-known fact that this also extended to all corners of the enterprise, including our workforce and partner Identity infrastructure. A cloud-only approach to Identity infrastructure necessarily brings along expectations […]

A Primer on APIs – Opportunities, Risk, and Remediation

Jon Lehtinen | GE

APIs offer premade services, utilities, and integration points that allow applications to deliver rich features without requiring the application itself to write each component. This presents a significantly reduced barrier of complexity and time to value for application offerings both commercially, and in the enterprise. That’s said, those same integration points that extend app capability […]

In CIAM, Pay Attention to the Entry Nodes

Nishant Kaushik | Uniken

When you think of customer identity and access management (CIAM), what do you think of? One of the first things I think of is a network. That’s because I believe security teams need to map out all the different ways in which your customer interacts with you, and how they end up authenticating themselves in […]

CIS Tweet Jam Highlights

Andi Hindle | Cloud Identity Summit

Last week, we hosted the annual #cloudidsummit Tweet Jam. Identity experts were tweeting about this year’s theme of ‘Intelligent Identity’ as a preview to the conversations we expect at CIS in June. The best news of all is a special promotion that was announced during the Tweet Jam that you can use even if you […]

“Edge” Identity and Access Management

Paul Madsen | Ping Identity

The premise of “fog” or “edge computing” is that some processing of Internet of Things (IoT) device data occurs near the device rather than being communicated up to the cloud for analysis there. A key advantage for such local processing is the potential for more dynamic and timely analysis. Would you want your self-driving car […]
