Building identity for an open perimeter
Netflix is a cloud-first company. The traditional model of a corporate network security perimeter no longer meets our needs. In this talk, we will be covering the core building blocks that comprise our Identity-based perimeter for both Corporate and Business-to-Business (B2B) use-cases. Topics will include standard based federation and single sign-on, multi-factor authentication, adaptive authentication, device health, authorization approaches, and how these investments combine to create an Identity-based security perimeter.

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.
