Digital’s everywhere. Hyper-connected, embedded, increasingly intelligent: consumers can’t imagine a life without it. The new digital lifestyle spans all age groups. It’s multi-screen, multi-function and multi-device, and it’s shaping a new world of experiences. Bottom line? Everyone’s a screenager.
But they’re also experiencing growing pains, and they’ll switch providers when quality and/or usability don’t measure up. Digital loyalty must be earned every day, and consumers are more cautious than ever about whom they share their data with. Trust is ultimately becoming the new digital currency.
In this session, as screenagers demand more, better, easier, faster, safer… we explore five mega-trends that show identity at the center of every digital experience.
This panel discusses why identity is a critical element to enabling digital business. From architect to analyst, each panelist brings a different perspective on identity and how it can impact the organization. Moderated by Mike Ellis, CEO of ForgeRock, the discussion focuses on lessons learned as well as how to plan for the future of identity and the impact of IoT.
Consumers are often bombarded with opt-in “requests” to share their personal data, losing trust as they assent. Often, employees treat access controls as obstructive, finding routes around them to be able to do their jobs. New regulatory regimes and the digital economy are spurring fresh needs for proper delegation, privacy, and trusted digital relationships.
How can we answer these needs across enterprise, customer, cloud, and smart device contexts? The User-Managed Access (UMA) standard, built on OAuth and OpenID Connect, promises to address these needs without so many tough compromises.
In this session, Eve Maler, will share insights and lessons learned from active PoCs that require a new generation of privacy and consent. Learn how UMA can be applied to authorization, consent, and delegation scenarios across a wide variety of sectors, and how the ForgeRock Identity Platform is delivering a practical UMA solution today.
The demands of digital business are driving the need for a different type of identity platform. One architected for not only securing the online experience, but also to enrich it. In this session we will outline a different way of architecting identity and the new requirements an identity platform must address including contextual identity, customer data management, micro-services, privacy and consent, and the IoT. This session will also provide an update on the ForgeRock platform and our vision for the future.
With a higher velocity of threats and fraud impacting IT security professionals, the traditional access management model has been given an end of life notice. Authentication and authorization are not one time events but continuous and dynamic based on context, events, location etc. Organizations also have to rethink inside versus outside the firewall, employee versus customer, password versus multi-factor. In this session, ForgeRock will provide an overview of the ForgeRock continuous security story and why this is important to addressing the new threat landscape.
I’m very inspired, and I hope when I return home, to pick up these things that I’ve learned and seen and do something with them in our business.
The variety of things covered here – there is something for everyone. My notebook are just crammed with notes and “must remember this,” “must go and speak to these people.” By sharing and getting this good stuff out there, we can change the world and make it better.
This is absolutely the best conference I attended this year. It was really packed with good presentations, excellent content, and right on the spot for my needs.
