Optiv Presents: Digital Transformation from an Identity and Data Perspective
Emerging trends and technologies have accelerated the adoption of digital transformation but they have also led to the explosion of data. The right users need to access the data for the right reasons but the controls that have been put in place at the traditional perimeter don’t extend to the applications and devices that are being accessed. This panel, moderated by Julie Talbot-Hubbard, will explore digital transformation from the perspective of identities and data and highlight tips to secure these critical assets.

What’s Old is New Again. Can Identity-Centric Security Finally Make Zero Trust a Reality?
Zero Trust is not a new concept. It was introduced almost a decade ago, when the economy was still recovering and Software as a Service (aka cloud applications) became the fast path to cost reduction. The number of IoT devices was 900 million compared to 11.2 Billion in 2018. With the explosion of cloud and connected things, Zero Trust is needed now more than ever. But how do we get there without upending decades of architectural decisions and security investments? It starts with the basics and ends with an approach that puts identity at the center of your security strategy, optimizing cyber security investments while controlling risk. Moderated by Julie Talbot Hubbard, Executive Advisory Board member of the Identity Defined Security Alliance, this panel of identity and security leaders from a cross section of industries will share their war stories, best practices and strategies for leading the change to an identity-centric approach to security.
