Digital identities are the lifeblood of the modern digital economy
As human activity migrates online, challenges for authenticating physical identities arise, while businesses and consumers look around for guidance.
Increasing demand for answers to the identity verification dilemma was just one of the contributing factors for the emancipation of the identity space as an industry of its own, vertical-agnostic.
With such an outlook, it is important to understand what a Digital Identity is, and their current role in our society. Furthermore, how to leverage the identities to build better business models, deliver better products and services; and most importantly, how to take the leap and hop on the Identity Evolution train - after all, you don’t want to get left behind.
We know implementing new technologies, and changing your current operations and processes can be a challenge. And even though the benefits far outweigh the costs, it always helps to have a guiding hand. Today, that guiding hand comes as a framework to understand how digital identities play a beneficial role in each industry and YOUR business, so you can start the journey from analog to digital identities within your organization.
At the end of the webinar you will:
- Be able to differentiate physical from digital identities, and the attributes that shape them.
- Appreciate the function digital identities play today, and their potential to help overcome present [and future] social and economic challenges.
- Understand the role of Blockchain in the Digital Identity Ecosystem.
- Recognize the business models that are placing identity at the center: Identity-as-a-Service, or Identity APIs - and how they can reshape the world as we know it.
- Know WHY and HOW to make the leap over to digital identities within your business.
Over the past year, we have seen data breaches shift towards identity-based breaches, targeting personal information of either employees or consumers. The access to the information is used to craft and construct highly organized attacks on enterprises and is a growing contributor to identity theft. The problem is compounded by the convergence of personal and work place identities, ultimately creating major security challenges for companies.
Our 2016 Authentication and Access Management survey found 90% of enterprise IT professionals are concerned that employee reuse of personal credentials for work purposes could compromise security. During the webinar, we’ll be discussing this and other trends in the strong authentication and access management market, including:
- The status of the two-factor authentication market and what we can expect in the years to come
- The enterprise risk issues of using social media credentials to access to corporate resources
- The role the cloud is playing in the enterprise especially as it relates to single sign on and application management and access
- The ongoing challenges enterprises cite as barriers to mass adoption of a mobile workforce
From password reset to password-less authentication, providing modern authentication assurance and contextual access management has never been more critical in today’s perimeter-less world. Okta's Senior Director of Identity, Karl McGuinness, talks through the evolution of Identity and Access Management and discusses emerging trends in identity and security.Read more >
Traditional methods of identity verification are contributing to lengthy and expensive KYC and onboarding processes. Technological advances, regulatory requirements and business necessity are leading organisations to a point where they have to rethink the way identity works.
With so many financial services institutions embracing digital, the big challenge is bringing together information about each client, from multiple systems, to create one accurate client identity. Achieving this, while demonstrating robust and compliant KYC capabilities, is causing costs to spiral.
In this exclusive webinar Jodie Paula Cohen, producer of the acclaimed Identity & KYC conference, catches up with leading Identity expert Rob Laurence, Director of Innovate Identity, to gain some practical insights into how these challenges can be tackled.
Questions will include:
1) How close are we to being able to access digital information about identity in a consumable and trusted way, across industries?
2) Which technologies should organisations be looking into, to support their identity and KYC processes?
3) Is the blockchain a complete solution for improved identity verification, or just part of a wider solution?
4) How can institutions ensure a user-friendly and compliant KYC and onboarding process?
5) What are the challenges and benefits of putting in place a ‘financial services passport’?
Join this thought provoking webinar for a discussion of the security and scalability challenges that cloud & mobile era brings along. Specifically, we will cover:
- A description of how token-based systems and multi-factor authentication can replace password based systems and the associated benefits of that
- A description of next generation identity protocols OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect and how they fit the bill
- An overview of a scalable and next-generation identity infrastructure that will secure the cloud and mobile
Travel through the Identiverse and discover the importance of identity security in a connected world.
Benefits of attending:
• Gain an understanding of the issues of identity security in the Cloud
• Get a clear picture of the standards that will enable deliver identity security in the real world
• Be informed about the latest trends affecting managing identities of people and things in the Cloud

Do you know where all of your Personal Identifiable Information is hiding?
Just like rabbits, personal identifiable information (PII) proliferates without control, however carefully you set out to manage it initially it’s likely to be contained in multiple places across your organisation. Understanding where PII is located and who is using your PII is a fundamental step in becoming compliant to GDPR.
Searching for and classifying structured and unstructured data is just part of the challenge you’re faced with under General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) where the definition of what constitutes PII are also far broader than the current privacy laws and extend to more types of organisation both in and outside of the EU.
In this webcast Paul Ferron, Digital Identity Strategist from CA Technologies is joined by Giulio Coraggio, Partner and Head of the Italian Technology Sector at DLA Piper to discuss:
-What is PII, how to locate, manage and protect it
-How to govern and manage information including who has access
-How to manage legitimate access v’s potential data breaches
-How to ensure fair processing of data and the ‘right to be forgotten’
