About this event:

Identity and Access Management software helps IT departments keep their organisations secure by controlling authorisation and access to data and resources. With the twin challenges of defending your organisation against internal threats posed by shadow IT and malicious insiders and the exterior threats of hackers and GDPR breaches, it can be difficult to ensure that your systems are secure, user-friendly and future-proofed.

Join us for Deskflix: Identity and Access Management to learn from the insight and experience of those at the top. What changes and new threats are coming to I&AM and how can you be prepared to respond to them and protect your organisation? Are there new technologies which could help you refine your I&AM approach? Where should you start when rolling out new identity management solutions? And, how can you make changes more palatable to staff?
