Build a Solutions-Driven Culture with a Modern Identity
Where competing IT priorities and limited resources hang in a delicate balance, you have to invest where you'll see the biggest impact. Digital identity, connecting students and staff to information that builds knowledge, is an opportunity for pivotal efficiency gains.
Privileged Access in the Healthcare Market
An essential tool in the effort to secure access to critical healthcare systems is privileged access management. With this, administrative and other accounts with elevated privileges have their passwords periodically randomized. Multi-factor authentication (MFA), robust authorization policies and access audit logs ensure that access is business-appropriate and users are accountable for their actions.
Financial Services
Compliance is the goal of nearly all privacy and internal controls in financial services. But compliance is just the start.
Advancing Privileged Access Management (PAM) to Address Modern Business Requirements
Security breaches of privileged accounts can be catastrophic to any business by allowing bad actors unfettered access to the company’s most sensitive data and IT systems. Related vulnerabilities have accelerated in recent years due to increased IT infrastructure complexities and broad distribution of business-critical services. To assist organizations with identifying the most effective methods for managing privileged access, Hitachi ID sponsored EMA's primary, survey-based research into the real-world requirements, challenges, and management techniques employed for securing privileged access.

5 Questions Every CIO Must Answer in the Coronavirus Age
Everything is different now, and there's no telling when employees will be back in the office, if ever. Capital One doesn't expect to bring employees back until after Labor Day. Amazon has extended its work from home policy to October. Facebook and Google will allow employees to work from home through the end of 2020. Shopify has closed all offices until at least 2021 with all employees working from home. Twitter employees never have to return to the office if they don't want to. These changes come with new challenges for IT. Some of them you've encountered already. Others are issues to anticipate and prepare for. Then there are the steps you might have overlooked in the scramble to fully enable remote work for your employees. Now is the time to strengthen your organization's security. Let's look at five questions every CIO should be asking right now.
Higher Education IT Leaders are Looking to Complement Access Governance with Automation
As budgets continue to be in flux, and IT and security teams must reduce risk using fewer resources, automation - a key business enabler - is becoming paramount.

Dealing with Identity Management challenges within the Covid-19 crisis
2020 has presented many challenges to many companies -- from mass furloughing for some businesses, to mass hiring for others. Workforces are struggling to adapt to new work-from-home mandates, and companies are ill-prepared to enable these new access demands. Financial services companies in particular are struggling to deal with a multitude of remote authentication related challenges. Hitachi ID will offer suggestions on how companies can use Identity Management and Privileged Access Management to secure access control for employees and keep businesses safe from potential breaches.
Which Comes First Identity Automation or Governance
Organizations that want to mitigate risk need identity and access management. It must become an integral part of the company, touching everyone and everything. IAM provides a strong rules platform that will increase worker productivity while improving security. Identity Management is key to ensure employees are both empowered to deliver value and prevent damage to the business's reputation, security, or bottom line. When getting started with IAM, companies will need to decide whether to begin with automation or governance first. This webinar will explore both approaches and make a case for which should come first.

Secure the Cloud: How to Lock Down Access to SaaS and IaaS
As organizations move their application inventory out of private data centers to public cloud providers, login pages are exposed to public URLs. This eliminates the network perimeter as a first line of defense and dramatically increases the set of possible attackers. At the same time, organizations are subject to increasing regulatory and audit requirements regarding privacy protection and governance. To address the increased risk of public access to critical systems and applications, organizations must deploy multi-factor authentication, robust access governance and control over privileged accounts. This webinar will discuss implementation of these measures.
Privileged Access in and for the Cloud
Privileged access management (PAM) systems are increasingly being used to great effect in securing cloud infrastructure and SaaS environments. With the popularity and affordability of cloud computing environments, organizations can now increase the value and lower the operating cost of PAM systems. This session will explore the various aspects of Cloud and PAM and provide concrete recommendations to implement them.

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.
