Organisations increasingly rely on cloud services, motivated by the benefits of scalability, accessibility, flexibility, business efficiencies and reduced IT costs. However, there are several security implications that organisations need to address, including the challenge of verifying identity and managing access to cloud services.

Cloud services bring added complexity to identity and access management, exacerbated by the distribution of data across a myriad of applications accessed by users from multiple devices and locations. Failure to adequately implement user authentication and access control in the cloud can be exploited by attackers to gain access to users’ credentials, manipulate systems and compromise data.

In this webinar, Senior Research Analyst Emma Bickerstaffe will discuss identity management, access control and user authentication in the cloud environment, and consider how organisations can effectively tackle this security concern.
