Cryptzone to discuss why recognition, rather than identity, should be foundation of access management at Cyber Security Expo

October 6, 2014

Session to propose that in order to prevent breaches the context in which a user makes claims relating to access management must be applied on a transaction-by-transaction basis

This year has seen many organizations breached, on a massive scale, resulting in compromised record tallies in the millions. In a seminar at this week's Cyber Security Expo in London, Cryptzone, a global provider of data security and identity and access management (IAM) solutions, Product Manager Jamie Bodley-Scott will contend that the reason IT defenses are being compromised so frequently is traditional identity and access management is flawed.

Seminar: Recognition rather than identity as the foundation for access management

The IT security industry has become obsessed by proof of identify in a bid to combat growing cyber security threats. However recent high profile data breaches at organizations, such as Target and JP Morgan, have demonstrated that even organizations with a strong identity based security model are vulnerable to insider attacks, when a trusted identity is hijacked.

This presentation introduces the concept of recognition, where identity becomes, only one dynamic attribute amongst many, used to determine user authenticity and grant access permissions, in order to minimize IT security exposure in line with risk based policies.

Date: Wednesday, 8 October at 11.40am
Venue: Identity and Data Centric Security Theatre at Cyber Security Expo, Excel London
