Nico Popp of Symantec will moderate a CTO roundtable discussion with Paul Agbabian CTO Norton, Brent Williams CTO Equifax, Tim Brown SVP Distinguished Engineer CA Technologies. Identity management has gone through a number of transitions and continues to evolve. Access to identity data is a component to any information security program. Multi factor Identity authentication, in particular, is a moving target as relying parties and identity providers need to comply with industry and federal regulations, as well as new identity standards and technology initiatives. In this panel discussion, you’ll hear about the changing authentication including knowledge-based, device-based, and out-of-band authentication options.
