The holiday season is a time to reflect on what is really important in life and what brings us all together. That, of course, is identity governance.

IBM Security’s Identity Governance and Intelligence solution will be celebrated at three major upcoming events: the 2016 Gartner IAM Summit, a webinar focused on health care and an analyst webinar in which IBM will host Forrester. At each of these events, IBM will showcase its identity and access management (IAM) portfolio, including real-world use cases, product demonstrations, interactions with the experts and more.

Identity Governance and Intelligence Stars at Gartner IAM Summit

From Nov. 29 to Dec. 1, Gartner will host IAM vendors, business partners and customers in Las Vegas for its annual IAM Summit, arguably the largest IAM event of the year. As a major sponsor of the event, IBM will have a booth and is set to host two speaking sessions by Jason Keenaghan, program director of IAM Offering Management, and Eric Maass, director of IAM Cloud Services Strategy.

The theme of the IBM booth is “Security Starts with People.” It will feature ongoing demonstrations of IBM Security’s IAM solutions, including IBM Security Identity Governance and Intelligence, as well as experts in each area to answer any questions attendees may have. Please stop by one of IBM’s sessions or visit us at booth No. 301. We look forward to seeing you there.

IBM Takes On Health Care

On Dec. 5, IBM will host a webinar focused on governance and health care titled “Safeguard Healthcare Identities and Data With Identity Governance and Intelligence.” Believe it or not, health care is one of the hardest hit industries from an information security perspective due to the difficulty of managing and governing identities with so many complex systems in place.

Join this webinar to learn about IBM’s success in the health care industry with IBM Security Identity Governance and Intelligence, including integration with Epic and other complex electronic medical record (EMR) systems.

Dig Into IAM Trends

IBM recently hosted Andras Cser, vice president and principle analyst serving security and risk professionals at Forrester, for a webinar titled “Identity and Access Management: What Are the Trends? How Do You Solve Them?

As the title suggests, Andras and IBM’s Jason Keenaghan dig into the current trends in IAM and discuss how we can solve new issues as they arise. With a particular focus on identity governance and access management and a lively Q&A session at the end, this is one on-demand webinar you won’t want to miss.

Incident Response for Health Care IT: Differences and Drivers

Threat actors continue to target the health care industry. IBM’s Threat Intelligence Index for 2022 rates the industry as the sixth most targeted. That puts it close behind the energy and retail and wholesale sectors. Certain regions seem to be more prone to attack as well. The Asia-Pacific region accounted for 39% of all health care-related attacks, while North America trailed next at 33%. Coming as no surprise, ransomware is the leading known method of attack, representing 38% of cases.Some…

Hospital Ransomware Attack: Here’s What a Cybersecurity Success Story Sounds Like 

Major ransomware attacks are scary, but against hospitals, they are even worse. One notable attack in August 2021 forced Ohio’s Memorial Health System emergency room to shut down (patients were diverted to other hospitals). In all hospital attacks, the health, safety, privacy and lives of patients face risk. But this incident also shows that whether targets are hospitals or any other kind of organization, the time and money spent preventing attacks is almost always worth it.  But what do you do…
