You’re invited: NAVIGATE, SailPoint’s Identity Governance Conference

24 Jul 2017

Identity governance forms a crucial part of any organisation’s cyber defence strategies, and next month SailPoint will bring together hundreds of professionals to discuss how to use identity for maximum effect at Navigate Sydney 2017.

The one-day event, to be held at Sydney’s International Convention Centre on August 23, will bring together renowned experts from SailPoint, the Australian Bureau of Statistics and Harvard University.

If you are not able to attend in person, we are now delighted to bring Navigate to you via LIVE Streaming. Take part in the event right from your computer or mobile device by registering here.

Attendees will get the chance to learn and collaborate; attend best practices sessions; hands-on training and learn the top secrets from the best in the business.

Topic highlights include:

  • Preparing Your Identity Program for the Cloud or On Prem vs Cloud
  • A comprehensive approach to governing access to applications and files
  • Privileged Access Governance: centralised visibility and control over high-risk access
  • Finding Ownership in a Sea of Data: Determining Data Owners
  • Extending the Identity Management Capabilities of Microsoft Azure AD with Identity Governance

Identity management allows organisations to know who has access to enterprise systems, securely empower users from anywhere, and feel secure enough to grow their business worldwide.

What else does identity governance do? It can foster collaboration by securing all data; embracing Shadow IT’s creation, downloads and uploads and also gives data owners better access management privileges.
