About the CONNECT Conference:                                                        

Today’s threat landscape is broad and sophisticated, and the consequences for failing to adequately protect against threats and respond appropriately when an attack is underway are far reaching. SecureAuth and Core Security deliver to enterprise-class organizations a discover, secure & protect, and respond capability that is only possible with vulnerability, endpoint, and network security fused with a strong identity protection framework.

Identity-based security automation is a new category that reflects the challenges of a silo’ed approach to enterprise security. Automation in the security operations center (SOC) is the inevitable result of increasingly sophisticated technologies and automation is only possible when false positive and negative results are minimal and the response action is precise and coordinated to minimize restrictions on legitimate access to enterprise resources.

SecureAuth and Core Security customers attending the CONNECT event will hear from company leaders, respected speakers, and industry peers on this new approach to the threat landscape. Product sessions will dive into details on current and future products, and research team members will be available to discuss new technologies.

How We Got Here and Where We’re Going

Did you ever wonder how we arrived at a point where cybersecurity incidents are at an all-time high despite almost $100B of enterprise spending on the problem? Keith Graham, CTO, is driven by this problem and will share a brief history of cybersecurity as a precursor to a prediction about where it is going. Understanding the evolution of attacks and attackers is critical to framing the future state, Keith’s history as a pioneer in this industry enables him to look back while looking forward.

Customer Case Study: Mercy Health – An Upgrade Story

Managing Identity in a healthcare environment requires many jumps, through many hoops.  Therefore, the Identity and Access Management (IAM) solution implemented in such an environment is rife with customizations to make the IAM solution hum.  Now, stare down the barrel of the upgrade gun, and imagine the panic that sets in! 

Mercy Health engaged in an upgrade of their Core Security Access Assurance Suite with a well thought out plan of attack……  Which of course went without a hitch, right? 

This session will endeavor to share the Mercy Health upgrade story from AAS version 8.1 to 8.4, while providing some of the pain points they encountered.
