with Dave Shackleford, Cybersecurity Expert and Founder of Voodoo Security
To say that organizations are full steam ahead with digital transformation initiatives would likely be an understatement at this point. Nonetheless, many organizations that have made the decision to undertake major projects like cloud migration, software development redesign to DevOps, remote work, and many others are realizing that foundational security practices and controls need updates too, from both a governance standpoint and a technical one. This is the case when it comes to identity management, particularly privileged identity and access security.
In truth, with all facets of IT becoming software-driven, most assets and elements of our infrastructure (both on-premise and in the cloud) are software-based in nature, meaning everything has an identity of varying types. This explosion in access brings new risks and challenges that organizations will have to plan for and navigate to take advantage of new technologies on their digital transformation journeys. In this webinar, Dave Shackleford of Voodoo Security will highlight some of the most innovative and exciting trends in digital transformation today, with some emphasis on cloud service implementation and DevOps. The discussion will focus on the types of identity-focused risks that can surface when implementing new technologies and IT practices, and how we can plan to tackle them head-on with planning, control and process definition, and leading technologies available right now.
