    Organizations going through a digital transformation need to manage and secure user identities beyond organizational boundaries, including partners, customers, and citizens. They want a single solution that’s user-centric, flexible, secure, and scalable enough to support global users authenticating with any kind of identity. They also want a solution that has rich customization for both consumer- and business-facing use cases. In this session you’ll see real-world examples that show how organizations can create customized, branded experiences. The session will also highlight considerations for managing the lifecycle of all types of users.

    A kill chain is the set of steps an attacker takes to achieve their objective. This nerve-wracking session includes live demos of current attack methods. You’ll walk through the identity kill chain from an attacker’s perspective and see what they see as they’re taking over your domain. We’ll show you the tools they use, how they apply them, and how they move from one guessed password to total takeover.
