Cloud computing services offer significant potential economic and operational efficiencies. However, these efficiencies are often accompanied by new regulatory requirements around the security of applications and data that are stored in the cloud.
In addition, many organizations are seeing an explosion in the numbers of users that are interacting with their services, whether these are existing customers conducting transactions or ‘fans’ who are interacting with your services through social media. And while there are clear benefits from consuming IAM services from the cloud, there are important risk factors that have to be considered as well.
This session will review the pros and cons of IAM Cloud Services and provide guidance and best practices based on specific use cases to help guide organizations to a model that meets their risk profile.
