Zero Knowledge Trust, Stefaan Van daele – IBM, AP Cloud Security CoC, Executive Security Architect
The term “Zero Trust” is popping up in most of the cybersecurity related communication from security vendors, cloud providers and consultancy firms. In this webinar we will go a bit beyond the hype and look how zero trust principles would impact the design of security solutions. From Enterprise Security Architecture level down to detailed design, zero trust should be included at each level to get most out of it. While the zero trust principles aren’t new, both new product capabilities and public cloud capabilities, do allow to implement zero trust in a more efficient way than before. During the session on Thursdya 9 July at 9:00 we walk through the different sExpertisees of security design with a zero trust focus.

IAM Culture: making the new rules stick, by Hendrik Parmentier, PwC, Security Culture
Abstract: Implementing an (I/P/CI)AM programme is an undisputed necessity in any contemporary, compliant organisation. But just having the right tools and processes in place doesn’t magically make your organisation as mature. Most of these programmes have been implemented top-down, and users are, all of the sudden, confronted with a new way of working. We commonly see a whole range of people-related side effects and collateral damage.

Governance of ID&AM in a cloud environment, by Kurt Berghs – Trustbuilder
Cloud is the new normal. There is no doubt about that every company in whatever industry or activity they are can afford not being connected always, everywhere, with the necessary scaleability and agility that services in the cloud bring along. The COVID19 crisis has forced employers and employees to adopt from one day to another. Applications, data and services needed to be available for homework, or to be supported from a distance. Getting access to those systems can be seamless, but in Identity and Access there are far more granular ways to organize this rather than having credentials for each and every application or service, without oversight on connectivity. In this perspective connecting applications, API’s, ensuring the right access, beyond CASB and ensuring compliance and security should be considered.
About : Kurt Berghs joined Trustbuilder in 2018. He wants to contribute toward optimally positioning the company on the IAM market in Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxemburg especially also in the areas of finance, insurance and retail.

The Rat Race to Modern IAM: How to survive, by Sven Pauwels, PwC IAM Lead
Abstract: The last 10 years IAM products have evolved at a high pace and the companies delivering these products have been trying to either keep up or stick out by presenting a variety of new features and possibilities. And it is true, what is on the market now can hardly be compared with what was on the market five years ago. With the messaging, marketing and demo’s that go with the efforts to provide customers with new features and functions also comes a lot of confusion and doubt. How can we be sure we pick the right product for our new IAM project? Next to that, there is a reason why products evolved so rapidly. The IT landscapes, threats and opportunities we are confronted with make for new needs and new approaches. But do we need every little feature we are being offered? How can we decide in an efficient and effective way what product to choose without spending half the budget getting to that conclusion? During our work on IAM projects for the last decade (and more), we have seen all the possible pitfalls of making a wrong or unfounded decision and based on that experience, we have defined a new approach for describing IAM needs and evaluating the possibilities based on needs, risk, cost and priority. All in an effort to help our customers survive the Rat Race to Modern IAM.
