The Road to Identity First Security: Identity Data, Observability & Analytics

Data is foundational to business intelligence – but how do you translate that into identity governance? Today’s enterprise has unprecedented levels of real-time, rich identity data across multiple parallel sources. More data leads to more predictive power in machine learning algorithms. These runtime data-driven insights can become a central component to a systematic compliance and risk management strategy. This session will highlight how identity data can be used to uncover patterns, anomalies, and outliers and radically improve decision-making, supporting your Identity First Security strategy.

Modern Authorization Panel: Going Beyond RBAC

Every cloud-native application needs some form of access control. Most applications provide role-based access control (RBAC), which has limitations when it comes to enterprise scale and fine-grained access control. Zero Trust Architectures require us to go further. Following the principle of least privilege, modern cloud apps can implement just-in-time authorization with fine-grained controls. With a fine-grained model, access rules can be defined on the application’s resources, often down to individual items. And a just-in-time model helps ensure the user has access to what they need, when they need it.

Two ecosystems are emerging around modern authorization: Policy-as-code and policy-as-data. Open Policy Agent (OPA) brings a policy-as-code approach to fine-grained authorization, and Google’s Zanzibar is the most known representative of the policy-as-data camp.
Join the panelists to discuss new developments in modern authorization, and compare the strengths and weaknesses of policy-as-code and policy-as-data as foundational models for a robust access control system.
