    Western Carolina University reached its goal of 100% account automation for persons along with attaining ERP and SSO integration, Azure AD and Office 365 licensing. IT partnered with business offices to identify personas and analyze business processes that create and manage the persona data. IT worked closely with HR for employees and guests, Registrar and Admissions offices for applicants and students, and Career Services for student workers. As a result, data from these business processes are fed to One Identity to manage the various aspects of the university’s account lifecycle and achieve 100% account automation.

    How to survive and deal with Audit
    Identity and Access Management (IAM) is often considered “low hanging fruit” and “rich pickings” for auditors. This talk will highlight some of the main areas where many organisations are still failing to effectively manage access to their systems and why auditors are often easily able to identify IAM issues. The presenter will reference practical examples to demonstrate significant challenges in managing access to systems especially against a backdrop of growing cloud usage and an increasingly distributed mobile workforce. The talk will also cover practical steps and mitigation strategies to help limit the occurrence of IAM related audit issues.

    Identity Governance Technology Breakout
    The process of ensuring that access is correct and provable across the entire enterprise, is the pinnacle of IAM. An end-to-end approach to governance that is built in from the start, includes not only user access but also access to data and privileged accounts. In this session Alex Binotto and Matthias Bauer will dive into what is coming down the road. More specific around two new exciting topics like Privilege Account Governance (PAG), and Application On boarding..

    In today’s world, security is about managing your level of risk. Adding privileged analytics to your PAM strategy can go a long way towards reducing risk in your environment. Historically, privileged analytics was used to identify risk behavior in real time. Attend this session to see how One Identity implements privileged analytics from two different attack vectors by identifying unusual levels of risk within your privileged user community as well as what actions they are taking in real time.
    Presenter: Peter Gyongyosi, Product Manager

    Presenter: Joe Campbell, Principal Solution Architect
    Access Management Technology Breakout
    Many “enterprise” IAM programs fail to live up to expectations, experience extreme delays, and go significantly over budget. Often performing IAM for AD and AAD is the cause of these deficiencies.

    Access Management Technology Breakout
    Microsoft has built an impressive cloud infrastructure with Azure AD and Office 365. But as Uncle Ben Parker once said, “with great power comes great responsibility.” The problem is that the interfaces and security models don’t really give a cohesive and secure mechanism to manage them. This session will teach you how to setup the Active Roles web interface to make a single cohesive management interface for your service desk to manage different attributes together for Active Directory, Azure AD, and Office 365 without confusing them, and with a minimum amount of training.
