June 2021 Chapter Meeting Web

Posted by Administrator Monday, May 24, 2021

Please join ISSA KC chapter members and other security professionals for a virtual meeting on June 24th, 2021.

Topic: Securing customer identity in an uncertain world

Summary: In today’s uncertain world, organizations must find ways to ensure their customers can engage with their services at any time, from any device, in a secure and safe manner.  That is where customer identity and access management comes in or “CIAM”. A CIAM solution must not only meet today’s security and compliance standards, but also create frictionless customer experiences to meet customers where they are and in the ways they need.  Join our sessions as we discuss CIAM in more detail, how priorities have shifted this year and what CIAM maturity looks like.
