Identity risk is a problem that’s become exponentially more challenging in cloud-native environments. Rapid application delivery makes over-privileged users the norm, while the explosion in machine identities creates dangerous attack vectors. What do you need to reduce your cloud identity attack surface and achieve least privileged access?

Join our panel of experts as they map out a blueprint for successfully reducing the risk associated with misconfigured cloud resources, and overly permissive identities, and discuss what’s next in cloud identity security.

In this session, we’ll cover:
• Security posture management for cloud-native applications
• Identity and entitlement challenges in the cloud
• Management of non-human security principals
• Best practices for reducing cloud identity risk
