Identity Management & Access Control in Multiclouds Workshop and Conference

Gaithersburg, MD | January 22 - 24, 2020

This one-and-a-half day conference will focus on identity management and access control in multi-clouds to mitigate insider threats and return control back to owners of applications and data. Emphasis will be placed on emerging concepts such as zero-trust architecture where gaining entry through a firewall or having an IP address does not provide additional privileges. The workshop will address attacks by implementing mutual TLS, secure service discovery, traffic encryption between services, and access control at the client, service, and data level through what is referred to as a “service mesh architecture.”
