About this talk

Using Authentication and Identity Management to Secure a Financial Network: The Door is Still Open and the Horse is Almost out of the Barn Carbanak. JP Morgan/Chase. Dyre Wolf. Bank of America. Bangladesh. Tesco Bank. This roll call should be proof enough of the attractiveness of the FSI to the hacker/cyber criminal community. While not all of them can be associated with Authentication and Identity Management issues, it’s undeniable that they have played a prominent role. An increased focus on authentication and identity management is a right step forward but just confirming a user’s identify is only half the task. With the concept of Zero Trust gaining momentum, authentication and identification must be reinforced by the network itself through policy based access and segmentation. This session will look back at some of the data breaches that have been attributed to weak authentication methods and how they might have been prevented. At the same time, the concept of internal network segmentation will be presented to show how both halves of the equation need to be brought together to effectively close off this common attack vector.
