​​​​​Automating Identity Management Tasks to Help Reduce Burden on the Service Desk

Presented By:  Jerrod Brennan

Identity and access management (IAM) related activities often fall to the service desk, with issues stemming from forgotten passwords and from users unable to access programs they need in order to do their jobs. As companies are using more and more cloud-based services, this has made the process of supporting these users even more difficult. The icing on the cake is that service desk employees need to be on the lookout for social engineers who try to exploit these issues for their own gain, trying to trick the service desk into giving them unauthorized access to systems and applications. With the right combination of people, process, technology, and security know-how, organizations can securely automate much of this activity. In this talk, Jerod Brennen will walk you through how to do just that.
