  • Okta Insights: The Power of Knowing your User Oct 6 2021 1:00 pm UTC 66 mins
    Keren Elazari, Jiong Liu & Nigel Hedges
    We’ve all watched it happen and now it’s here. Digital has become the primary customer experience. Likewise, most workforces are committed to being permanently distributed.

    This means that any business or organization planning for future success must ensure that its digital user experience is a wonderful one: frictionless, engaging and aligned to the brand. And, of course, it must be secure...more secure than ever.

    At the heart of this evolution is a modern, intelligent, flexible and scalable identity and access management system (IAM).

    Join us in this session to understand the most critical considerations, the business-enabling opportunities and the latest practical insights around implementing future-proof IAM for your customers and workforce.

    Highlights include:

    Keren Elazari, author, celebrated TED speaker and one of the world’s leading cybersecurity thinkers, will preview the evolving landscape of 2021 and beyond
    Jiong Liu of Okta reveals why centralizing Identity just might be the most powerful enabler for your business or organization’s future success
    Nigel Hedges, Head of Information Security at CPA Australia, will share valuable insights from a recent significant workforce and customer migration project

  • How to Achieve Zero Trust Data Protection in the Cloud Sep 29 2021 1:00 pm UTC 40 mins
    Jason Clark, Dustin Wilcox
    As a critical building block of a true Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) architecture, Zero Trust Data Protection delivers security based on context and continuous risk management, allowing conditional access controls to be defined based on data sensitivity, app risk, user behavior risk, and other factors.

    Join Netskope and Anthem to learn why data protection is about context, managing data access based on who the user is and what the user is trying to do. Learn how to apply Zero Trust principles to update ineffective approaches to DLP, protect data in the cloud, and make the right investments to achieve the most effective SASE architecture for networking and security.
  • Bridging the Gap between Physical & Digital Identity Sep 29 2021 7:00 am UTC 36 mins
    Samy Kamkar, Brooke Lierman, James Segil
    The separation of physical and digital worlds leaves IT systems vulnerable to physical security breaches; today’s world requires a more holistic approach to security. This is true more than ever before, as the surge in remote working in 2020 has teams logging in from home in many locations, while their physical workplaces have less regular attendance that’s now moved to a scheduled rotation for teams to comply with social distancing density requirements. In their global deployment, Intercom uses Okta and Openpath to bridge the gap between physical and digital security, providing a frictionless and secure user experience regardless of where users are. Leveraging the open API architecture Openpath provides, Intercom was able to combine access control with their security suite including Openpath’s native integration with Okta to automatically sync users across the system making it quick and easy to issue or revoke credentials for both an improved security posture and an increased ROI. Giving customers the ability to synchronize users in real-time not only results in fewer vulnerabilities for physical access to locations, but also helps make sure that as new employees onboard in the company, they have quicker and more immediate access to the physical buildings they work in.
  • Identity-Focused Security for Your Zero Trust Journey Sep 28 2021 2:00 pm UTC 22 mins

    With increasingly distributed workforces and the rise in identity-based attacks, identity has become the de facto perimeter for organizations today. Identity is the foundation of a zero trust architecture, as you need to ensure the right people have the right level of access, on the right device, to the right resource, in the right context. Learn how a comprehensive, identity-first security strategy can tie the complexities of protecting people and assets together in a seamless experience.
  • How to build digital trust & better experiences? Sep 28 2021 1:00 pm UTC 50 mins
    Hans De Mulder, Bart Cools & Frank Benus
    The events of 2020 pushed the notion of trust to the forefront of all our lives. It made customer trust in brands acutely important to the bottom line amidst a severe economic recession. And it has forced many organisations to overcome long-standing objections, to trust their employees to work from home (WFH) and to trust digital channels as the only way to serve their customers.

    The key questions which will be addressed in this webcast will be:

    What is the quickest route to enhancing productivity, and building loyalty and engagement—not just among employees and partners but definitely also customers?
    What can brands, businesses and governments do to build digital trust?
    And what role does security tools & policies play in building digital trust?
