NEW YORK - Oct. 16, 2018 - PRLog -- According to the Information Security Forum (ISF), organizations are increasingly relying on cloud services, motivated by the benefits of scalability, accessibility, flexibility, business efficiencies and reduced IT costs. However, there are several security implications that organizations need to address, including the challenge of verifying identity and managing access to cloud services.

Cloud services bring added complexity to identity and access management, exacerbated by the distribution of data across a myriad of applications accessed by users from multiple devices and locations. Failure to adequately implement user authentication and access control in the cloud can be exploited by attackers to gain access to users' credentials, manipulate systems and compromise data. With increased legislation around data privacy, the rising threat of cyber theft and the simple requirement to be able to access data when you need it, organizations need to know precisely to what extent they rely on cloud storage and computing.

During this webcast, Emma Bickerstaffe, Senior Research Analyst of the ISF, will discuss identity management, access control and user authentication in the cloud environment, and consider how organizations can effectively tackle this security concern. Please register via this link ( for the free webcast which takes place on Tuesday, October 23 at 8 a.m. (ET). A recording will be available following the conclusion of the event.
