In Pictures: CSO's Identity Driven Access Management Round Table

It's the centenary of the commencement of World War One. Back then, there were borders to protect. The soldiers knew who they were fighting and there were very few incursions where one side crossed a border undetected. Today's battles are different. The bad guys are stealing the good guys’ passwords and identities to get access to whatever they want. And they often wait weeks or even months before revealing their true objectives.

The encryption quiz

The complexity of encryption schemes has been increased dramatically in an attempt to outpace the development of computational tools designed to crack them. Now it's important to devise algorithms that can't be brute forced for trillions of years in the hopes that they will remain secure long enough to be useful before they, too, are broken. Here's a quiz about encryption to see how well you are versed in one of security's most important components. Keep track of your score and check at the end to see how well you stack up.

It also participates in UN peace keeping, operations with allies such as the USA and disaster relief. In essence the ADF is a form of “insurance” against security threats to our nation.

So, Identity Theft. What is it really? Well, I’m glad you asked. It’s basically when your personal details are used fraudulently to open accounts or obtain documentation in your name.

Securing the Identity of Things (IDoT) for the Internet of Things

In its recent report, The Identity of Things (IDoT) for the Internet of Things, Gartner lays out how it believes the Internet of Things (IoT), or what is often now referred to as the Internet of Everything (IoE), cannot and will not prosper unless organisations knuckle down and come to grips with how to manage multiple identities. The report then goes on to detail how today’s identity and access management technologies cannot provide the scale or manage the complexity that IoT brings to these organisations, further complicating the problem.

Securing digital identities for the cloud era

Though it may not be widely recognised amidst all the noise around technology trends like cloud computing, mobile, and the Internet of Things (IoT), identity is a fundamental requirement to future digital growth. Without a scalable and repeatable identity strategy, businesses and organisations will not be able to properly take advantage of mobile, cloud, or IoT. A proper identity strategy allows them to identify and engage with their customers in a meaningful way — whether it be through a laptop, mobile phone, tablet, connected car, healthcare wearable, connected home device, or the next great connected innovation.

However, digital technologies and global interconnection have introduced a significant number of new risks and greatly amplified existing ones. There are now many significant, high-profile examples of information risks being realised, and their impacts continue to grow. Organisations simply must improve their management of information risk.
