Let the Good Guys In: Taking Identity & Access Management to the Next Level
Identity and access management is about far more than keeping the bad guys out. You need to let people in to your organization – employees, customers, partners, suppliers and so on – but not every level of access is created equal. In this program, leading experts from Gartner and Hitachi ID Systems will help you determine who gets access and where they can go, what tools you should be using to ensure the most effective Identity and Access Management process for users and the enterprise, where to you turn for the right IAM solution for your needs.
Achieving Quick Wins in IAM projects
Many IAM projects struggle or even fail because demonstrating their benefit takes too long. Quick-wins that are visible to the end users are a key success factor for any IAM program. However, just showing quick-wins is not sufficient, unless there is a stable foundation for IAM delivered as result of the IAM project. Thus, building on an integrated suite that enables quick-wins through its features is a good approach for IAM projects.
Best Practices for Privileged Access Management
In an organization with thousands of IT assets, it can be difficult to securely manage access to privileged accounts for several reasons:
  • There are thousands of privileged passwords.
  • Administrator passwords exist on each device and application.
  • It is difficult to coordinate changes to shared passwords.

When there are many shared, static passwords, former IT staff retain sensitive access after leaving an organization. It can also be difficult to trace changes back to individuals who made them.

IAM Assembly Line
Evolving from hand-assembled to "factory-built" IAM systems. Idan Shoham re-presented his standing-room only seminar from the 2014 Gartner IAM Summit -- The IAM Assembly Line. In the past, IAM deployments were very customized. This led to cost overruns, missed deadlines and aborted or truncated projects. We present a standardized approach to IAM implementations that significantly lowers cost, shortens timelines and reduces risk.
The Role of Relationships in Identity and Access Management
Traditionally, user rights inside IAM systems have been expressed using organizational hierarchies. However, this model does not fit well with real-world requirements. In this presentation, we will introduce a more robust model for IAM security: relationships between users. Relationships are a better foundation for a variety of security controls inside the IAM system, ranging from privacy protection to approvals workflows.
Hitachi ID Identity and Access Management Suite 8.2 Review and Demo
A review and demo of our most recent release, 8.2. The new version updates the Privileged Access Manager (HiPAM), Identity Manager (HiIM) and Password Manager (HiPM) products with major improvements to scalability, high availability, usability and many other important new features.
Alternative Approaches to Privileged Access Management
An exploration of mechanisms to grant users and programs elevated privileges that do not necessarily involved shared/privileged accounts with randomized/vaulted passwords. Alternates include temporary privilege elevation for pre-existing, personal accounts and establishment of temporary SSH trust relationships. Approaches to securing passwords used by Windows service accounts and embedded in applications are also introduced.
Best Practices for Privileged Access Management
Hitachi ID will review best practices and current customer programs from physical infrastructure and credential vaults to effective projects.
Best Practices for Privileged Access Management
Introduces the concept of a reference implementation for IAM deployment, as an alternative to building custom configurations of IAM software for every deployment in every context. Legacy approaches to IAM automation are too costly, time consuming and risky and only serve to perpetuate unoptimized business process. A far better approach is to adopt best practices business process wholesale and implement a standardized system quickly and at lower cost. Different deployment patterns for different kinds of IAM systems are identified, because one size does not fit all.

Entitlement Administration & Governance - a fresh approach to managing users and their access rights
In this session, Idan Shoham, Hitachi ID Systems CTO, introduced Entitlement Administration and Governance. This term is proposed in recognition of the fact that most organizations are primarily interested in managing what their users can access, and only secondarily in identity attributes. Moreover, routine administration processes are tightly coupled with governance, access policy, audit and other controls.

Security Policies: Roles and SoD
This webinar is about effective policy enforcement in a corporate identity management context, including use of roles and segregation of duties to ensure that users get appropriate access rights and do not violate fraud-prevention rules. An SoD (Segration of Duties) policy that can be bypassed is perhaps worse than no policy at all - it gives the illusion of security without the reality. Hitachi ID Systems will review deep inspection SoD rules and how users can be blocked from circumventing SoD policy.

How to Leverage Standard, Best Practice Processes for IAM Automation
In this Gartner seminar presentation, we advocate replacing legacy identity and access change management processes with standardized best-practices, right from the start. Legacy IAM implementations have automated existing business processes, rather than optimizing processes first. This leads to benefits both during implementation and once the IAM system is operational: Implementation has lower cost, lower risk and shorter time to value. Organizations gain richer automation, shorter SLAs, bigger cost savings and more effective security.
Best Practices for Hitachi ID Identity and Access Management Suite Database Configuration
