Abstract: Building out an identity and access management (IAM) program can be an overwhelming task. Where do you start? Who do you engage? How do you get from a vague, undefined idea to a practical, real-world solution? Fortunately, Jerod is here to help you answer that question. Drawing on his experience deploying an IAM program in an enterprise environment, combined with years of consulting experience, he put together this talk as a step-by-step instruction manual to help move your IAM program from where it is to where you want it to be.
Bio: By day, Jerod Brennen (@slandail) is a security architect, advisor, speaker, and teacher. By night, he’s a husband, father, writer, filmmaker, martial artist, musician, and gamer. I think it’s fair to say that he’s earned every gray hair in his beard, having spent his career fulfilling infosec roles in consulting, higher education, retail, and public utilities. Jerod loves to share what he’s learned over the years every chance he gets: at local and regional professional meetings, at larger conferences, and online via blogs and podcasts. He has published multiple online information security courses with Pluralsight and LinkedIn Learning, and he also teaches courses in person, both domestically and internationally. At the end of the day, Jerod just wants to help folks get one step closer to doing what they want to do securely.
