Gartner Identity & Access Management Summit

4 – 5 March 2024 | London, U.K.

Identity-First Security:
Simplify. Enable. Protect.

In a world where the traditional corporate network perimeter has become obsolete — the identity infrastructure has become the new battleground for bad actors. Identity and access management (IAM) models that rely on legacy approaches to manage identities of users and machines across growing lists of applications and environments have become complex and ill-equipped to adapt to changing needs of business and technological advancements. Security leaders must evolve their IAM toward an identity-first approach that puts identity-based controls at the heart of your organization’s protection architecture to enhance its cybersecurity posture, while delivering digital transformation and business value.

Join a community of experts and IAM leaders at Gartner Identity & Access Management Summit and participate in interactive and collaborative sessions, share experiences and access the latest research to equip you with a detailed plan that helps bring your organization into the identity-first era.
