Most security leaders have entered 2021 understanding that securing rapid digital acceleration means greater reliance on Identity and Access Management programs than ever before. Many are embracing identity- and risk-centric concepts such as Passwordless Authentication, Zero Trust, and Mesh Security to address needs for greater resiliency and flexibility. Dr. Zulfikar Ramzan, Chief Digital Officer at RSA and a world-renowned expert on digital identity believes that success demands both clarity of vision and understanding for our current place on the continuum of identity evolution.

Step into a time machine with Dr. Ramzan as he takes you on a journey to explore how the concept and practices of identity and access management have evolved over time. He’ll also show you where both are headed, and how your identity management strategy may need to change to keep pace with business and technology trends.
