Identity and Access Management (IAM) Sessions from Cybersecurity Summit On-Demand

Posted By Kent Purdy, Thursday, September 12, 2019
Updated: Friday, September 6, 2019

While the 2019 Micro Focus Cybersecurity Summit has come and gone, that doesn’t mean that you don’t have access to the latest presentations covering security trends and solutions coming out of Micro Focus. Since it’s my area of specialty I’m going to talk about the Identity and Access Management (IAM) sessions that show up as the middle section on the “Content on Demand” page.

https://www.microfocus.com/en-us/events/cybersecurity-summit-on-demand/speakers

Based on my experience with customers, rarely is there a roadmap discussion where customers don’t learn something new. Not just the future stuff coming down the pike, but also what’s in the product today. The IAM roadmap presentations might very well kick off a discussion with your Micro Focus partner or sales rep to better use what you’ve already purchased.

Another noteworthy session is called "Mitigate Your Biggest Security Risk: Privileged Identities." That session starts by covering the root causes of specific risks, then moves on to the key capabilities of NetIQ Privileged Account Manager. Paul Jones from Cerner then explains their strategy and approach for securing privileged users as well as the tangible results they've seen.

In the session that I participated in, Gireesh Kumar introduces the latest IAM offering - NetIQ Secure API Manager, which has become an essential component of access management. In this session, I cover market trends in API usage and vulnerabilities, then Gireesh goes into detail on how Secure API Manager can be used to extend the coverage of your access management environment. If you have IAM responsibilities within your organization, this is a must-see session.

MER / Sapient webinar sponsored by Micro Focus -- Privacy in the United States: A State by State Privacy Law Review

Posted By Administration, Thursday, September 12, 2019
Updated: Friday, September 6, 2019
The past year has seen a number of new and expanded state regulations addressing privacy and data security. What is emerging is a daunting patchwork of duplicative, overlapping, and occasionally contradictory Information Governance (IG) obligations, ranging from the comprehensive California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) to the highly specific Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA). With no consistent direction, and with the specter of Federal legislation in this area, IG professionals have their work cut out for them. In this webinar, two seasoned cybersecurity and compliance lawyers will help you make sense of this fast-changing environment, avoid potential pitfalls, and craft resilient compliance programs.

White Paper -- Achieving Security in a Cloud-Based World: The Path to Universal Policy Management

Posted By Administration, Thursday, September 12, 2019
Updated: Friday, September 6, 2019

Most organizations manage policies in silos across their organization. Even those managing group policy within Active Directory find it very difficult to effectively leverage those authorization and authentication policies in other systems. All systems within your environment require some kind of policy controls to be enforced and auditable – from Linux and UNIX servers to a wide variety of cloud resources such as virtual machines, SaaS, containers, etc. It becomes even more challenging when you must prepare your existing security policies for the cloud and find a way to migrate them to cloud services such as Intune.

Managing policy in so many different places is highly inefficient and the lack of consistency opens your organization up to a great amount of risk. Bad actors are just waiting to find vulnerabilities when it comes to security policy and will exploit any gaps every chance they get.

Download this white paper to learn:

  • How to transform the way you manage security policies to improve security
  • Why effective policy management can drive efficiency and reduce risk
  • The steps you can take to implement a modern universal policy strategy
  • How the new Micro Focus policy management solutions can help

The Hidden Business Enabler - Advanced Authentication

Posted By Administration, Thursday, September 12, 2019
Updated: Friday, September 6, 2019

Whether businesses are seeking to protect themselves from outsiders or simply complying with government mandates, identity verification continues to be a cat and mouse game between taking on risk and the security guarding against it. Yet it’s often their tactical view that limits the business’s ability to use their security investment to their full advantage.

Join us for this exciting webinar on October 1st at 8:00 a.m. Pacific with Andras Cser, Vice President, Principal Analyst Serving Security & Risk Professionals at Forrester, as we look through the lens of business enablers at why maximizing your authentication flexibility is a best-practice approach to empower your organization.
