Identities, Icebergs, and Headlines

20 Nov 2019, 12:10 - 12:30

Innovation Stage

Innovation Session

Like the visible part of an iceberg, it’s machine identities, rather than human identities, that make up the vast majority of authentication and encryption events in our networks. But despite recent news highlighting massive attacks that were enabled by the failure to protect these identities, they remain overlooked and underfunded. In this session we’ll talk about the critical importance of machine identities in modern initiatives like DevOps, cloud migration and containerization, and show how to prevent new attacks that focus on compromising these identities. It’s time to make machine identity protection a part of your mainstream cyber defense strategy.

After completing this session you will be able to:

  • Understand the threats facing machine identities of all types
  • See examples of where machine identity compromise led to breaches
  • Learn the three fundamental needs of modern machine identity protection: visibility, intelligence, and automation
