About this talk

Using cloud and cloud-migration to accelerate business growth and explore new ways to innovate and quickly implement new services emphasizes the need to adopt the mindset of security-by-design and zero trust. Without a solid foundation of cyberprotection, businesses open a gateway for cyberattacks and cybercriminals to cause severe and irreparable damage. The core and foundation of true cybersecurity is validated digital identities (eID): The prerequisite of all other cybersecurity measures. Validated digital identities must be the one and only authorized way to identify and gain access across all user groups, services, and devices. For more than 15 years, Denmark has provided public access to the eID-solution MitID. 3rd. generation is now available delivering one unified system giving both citizens, employees, public authorities, and businesses easy access to validated digital identities. Bjarke Alling has been closely involved in the development of the solution and will share insights into how it is used and how validated digital identities can be implemented. Takeaways: 1.) How the Danish solution for validated digital identities works 2.) What the Danish solution for validates identities gives access to 3.) How to adopt validated digital identities as the foundation of a truly cybersecure cloud infrastructure About the speaker: Bjarke Alling is co-founder and acting Group Managing Director of cybersecurity company Liga.
