About this Event
The Pandemic greatly accelerated the adoption of cloud-based B2B Collaboration solutions. What does that mean for the identity management field? Are we prepared? We will have a closer look at the B2B capabilities of one of the most extended cloud platforms – Microsoft 365 – and dive into the risk scenarios and the possible countermeasures that adopters must focus on.
Passwords alone are not safe enough since users use easy ones and reuse them for different applications. Multifactor Authentication (MFA) increases security when users access transaction-services and sensitive data. But it impacts usability and implies costs to the organizations. The presentation introduces different approaches and provides guidance on how to decide on MFA-capabilities based on real projects.
