Identity and Access Management: The Cloud Perspective

Organisations are increasingly moving their applications and infrastructure to “cloud” based solutions (, Amazon Web Services) or Software as a Service (SaaS) applications (e.g. Google apps). As a consequence, organisations phase the challenge of managing the user identity within both their internal and external environment.

During this session we will introduce the Identity and Access Management (IAM) as a security discipline and highlight its importance for organisations.  Then, we will discuss the evolvement of IAM to accommodate the business requirement of Cloud Security using the Federated Identity Management, Federated Single Sign On and Enhanced Authentication capabilities to ensure adequate protection of the cloud services.
