Identity is the Perimeter, but Risk is the Gatekeeper
As the dust settle on the mass motion to remote working, we're all dealing with security after-the-fact. Identity is the perimeter in our new distributed world, but keeping it secure will require bringing risk in to be the gatekeeper. Risk is multi-faceted, so cybersecurity professionals need to understand the different layers of risk and how to address each in order to truly implement a zero trust model and maintain the security of your identity perimeter.

Here's what you'll learn:
  • The layers of risk and quantifying each one
  • Prioritization when addressing risk
  • Tying identity and risk together to maintain vigilance
