Agenda Tracks

TRACK I: Increasing Businsess Value through an integrated Governance, Risk Management & Compliance (GRC) Strategy

GRC (Governance, Risk Management, Compliance) very often is seen as kind of a business-centric layer on top of IAM infrastructures. But it is much more. GRC has to go well beyond IAM – for example Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM), Business Service Management (with aspects like business continuity), and other areas have to be covered as well.

At European Identity Conference (EIC) 2009, we will focus the Strategy Track on a simple question: What are the controls that business requires from IT?

Within these controls, risk controls are amongst the most important ones. Risk controls cover many aspects, including the fulfillment of compliance regulations and business continuity. Key topics within the Strategy Track will include:

  • Business & IT Strategy Alignment
  • Enterprise/IT Risk Management
  • Authorization Management
  • Enterprise Role Management
  • GRC Platforms & Strategies

TRACK II: Reducing Complexity and Cutting Costs through an Effective Identity Management Infrastructure

Identity management as a fundamental IT infrastructure element is touching every part of the business. It therefore is key to controlling costs, reducing complexity and shaping a future proof enterprise IT in line with your company´s business objectives. EIC 2009 track II will focus on the key Identity Management technologies, such as

  • Enterprise & Web Single Sign-On, Identity Federation
  • Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM) + Identity Audits
  • Business Service Management (BSM)
  • Identities in the Context of IT Service Management (ITSM) and ITIL
  • Strong and Versatile Authentication
  • Authorization Strategies
  • Application Security

TRACK III: Increasing Value through Identity Management Innovation

To remain innovative and agile is a great success factor even while the economy is on a downturn. EIC 2009 will leave away “rocket science” and focus on those trends and innovations, which create real business value in meeting pressing needs more timely and optimize Identity Management processes. Some of the topics within track III will include:

  • Identity Management – the Baseline for Cloud Computing Securtiy
  • User Centric Identity Trends and Business Models
  • Mobile Identity Trends

TRACK IV: Best Practices

Building on experiences we gained from our previous European Identity Conferences, best practices presentations play a key role in our 2009 agenda. EIC is the only place where you can discuss issues and decisions affecting your Identity Management and GRC projects with such a large number of your peers from European companies. Besides the topics already described, best practices key topics will include

  • User Provisioning & Deprovisioning, Identity Lifecycle Management
  • Information Lifecycle Management
  • Strong Authentication & Physical/Logical Convergence
  • Identity Management and GRC in SAP Environments

Conference Chairs

Like in the last two years, Jörg Resch and Martin Kuppinger have been in charge of building an agenda which perfectly combines best practices and thought leadership. The presentations and panels of the EIC 2009 will provide the information for your currently running projects, give you checklists and advice for vendor and technology selections, and will give you as well insight into the chances and risks of decisions you make today in the mid- and long-term timeframe. EIC 2009 again provides the broadest range of topics around GRC and IAM available in the market.
