Digital transformation is well underway and sound security architecture is a critical component. The rate of technology change, and the increasing volumes and sophistication of cyber-attacks, are driving up complexity. Architecture is the key to simplifying the complex.

Join Dan Higham (Voya Financial – Director, Security Architecture), Mark Coderre (OpenSky – National Practice Director and CISO), and like-minded peers at our inaugural CT Security Architecture Forum to discuss approaches to sound security architecture, and why it’s time to look at Identity and Access Management again; because your digital transformation depends on it!

Spoofing identity undermines layers of cyber defense in minutes. Attackers use personal information, made available by numerous past breaches, to undermine common identity approaches. Sound Digital Identity & Access Management re-establishes the organization’s ability to know who it’s dealing with, even in the Cloud.
