Identity and Access Management (IAM) and cybersecurity have evolved as separate disciplines over the years; however, they mutually reinforce each other to a significant extent. Without security, identity cannot exist, and vice versa. Identity and cybersecurity are converging in ways that offer significant risk reduction potential for many companies. The best path forward is to take a unified identity and security approach to increase efficiency and reduce mean time to detect threats and response times. Come join Pamela Dingle and Alex Weinert as they explore why IAM pros need to have their own point of view when it comes to risk, and where risk-based policy design and real-time enforcement can and should fit into an overarching security operations program.
