63% of data breaches leverage weak or stolen passwords, but a strong identity governance program can dramatically reduce this risk.  The challenge, however, is ensuring your identity governance program remains strong, even as your business and the industry change rapidly (think: cloud adoption).

The key:  Evaluating your identity governance program against the same industry standards and security frameworks that you depend on in the rest of your business, like NIST, COBIT, or ISO 27001/27002.  And building an IAM roadmap for a secure and compliant future on the cloud.

In this 30-minute webinar, you’ll learn how to assess your identity governance program against these standards and use these findings to build a roadmap to your identity governance future state.  Attendees will learn:

  • The most important qualities of a meaningful identity governance assessment
  • How to evaluate “current state” for your end-to-end IAM program
  • The most important domains and processes to assess
  • How to use the results to justify planned investments and win over skeptical executives
  • How to use the results to design your roadmap for a future in the cloud

The webinar is followed by a 15-minute Q&A with our panelists.
