Dialog III: Identity Information Quality – Foundation for reliable Access Control. How to Handle this in the Decade of the Identity Explosion, with Social Logins, BYOI (Bring Your Own Identity) etc.?
Identity Information Quality – sort of the “Identity IQ” – has been a challenge since the early days of IAM. Technically seen, it is feasible to synchronize and exchange identity data with various systems. But what about the orphaned accounts? What about inaccuracies in HR systems? Everyone who has dealt with IAM in global organizations is well-aware of the latter challenge: Not every source for HR-based identity data provides the same level of quality. Nowadays, when dealing not only with employees and some few business partners but with all the partners and customers, this becomes an even bigger challenge. Social logins and other sources with limited trustworthiness, the concepts of BYOI (Bring Your Own Identity) – they create a new challenge for Information Security professionals. How good are these? To which degree can we base access control decisions on that information? How to improve quality of that information, for instance by combining various sources? Following a short initial presentation with some thesis on that, the panelists and the audience will have the opportunity to discuss their challenges and look for solutions, with the advice of all the KuppingerCole analysts and the industry experts in the room.
