Teleworking technologies were being adopted moderately when the world got hit by Covid-19 pandemic, accelerating their adoption to enable the shift towards work-from-home (WFH). However, it has posed new challenges to organizations with regards to information security. One of the major challenges faced by them pertains to unauthorized access. With increasing cloud adoption and usage of different devices, managing the identity and access has become an arduous task.
Starting with authentication which throws up risks related to the method of access when the user is accessing a server or an application with sensitive information, the next challenge is to have an authorization system which is specific to the organization’s business model and culture. Moreover, there is a need for an element of automation when it comes to administration so as to ensure that enforcement and security risks are not overlooked.
To overcome these challenges, businesses need to devise the right approach towards Identity and Access Management(IAM) based on their business model. Through this webinar, we will bring together CIOs from different industries who will explain how they are addressing these challenges and what should be the right approach for IAM.
