2022 NZ Cyber Security Summit
Connecting Policy, People and Practice

Today we are seeing new challenges when it comes to Managing Privilege Access Management within the enterprise environment. The acceleration of Digital Transformation, the Adoption of MuliCLOUD/SAAS, Remote Access and DevOps environments, is expanding the attack landscape. It’s beyond just IT Admins who need access, it also encompasses DevOps, Business Users, Remote Access, and Non Humans who need access to these new environments. Discover how to confidently adopt these new Hybrid Environments and meet the Privilege Access Management Challenge
Digital Acceleration has caused many organisations to move first, ask how best to secure and manage changes to their networks later, creating a perfect storm for attackers and threats looking to exploit silos, complexities and visibility gaps that arise from such complex and piecemeal environments. To overcome these challenges, a cybersecurity mesh platform is required.
