  4. 4. The value of information goes beyond the written words, numbers and images: knowledge, concepts, ideas and brands are examples of intangible forms of information. In an interconnected world, information and related processes, systems, networks and personnel involved in their operation, handling and protection are assets that, like other important business assets, are valuable to an organization’s business and consequently deserve or require protection against various hazards.

  23. 23. Today’s IT Challenges More Agile Business • More accessibility for employees, customers and partners • Higher level of B2B integrations • Faster reaction to changing requirements More Secured Business • Organized crime • Identity theft • Intellectual property theft • Constant global threats More Compliant Business • Increasing regulatory demands • Increasing privacy concerns • Business viability concerns
  24. 24. State Of Security In Enterprise • Incomplete • Multiple point solutions from many vendors • Disparate technologies that don’t work together • Complex • Repeated point-to-point integrations • Mostly manual operations • ‘Non-compliant’ • Difficult to enforce consistent set of policies • Difficult to measure compliance with those policies
  25. 25. Identity Management Values • Trusted and reliable security • Efficient regulatory compliance • Lower administrative and development costs • Enable online business networks • Better end-user experience
  29. 29. • What is Identity Management ? “Identity management is the set of business processes, and a supporting infrastructure, for the creation, maintenance, and use of digital identities.” The Burton Group (a research firm specializing in IT infrastructure for the enterprise) • Identity Management in this sense is sometimes called “Identity and Access Management” (IAM) Définition
  30. 30. IAM AT ICHEC… • “MY NAME IS JULIE AND I AM A STUDENT.” (Identity) • “this is my password.” (Authentification) • “I want an access to my account” (Authorization ok) • “I want to adapt my grade.” (Autorization rejected)
  31. 31. What are the questions ? • is this person the one she said she is? • Is she a member of our group ? • Did she receive the necessary authorization ? • Is data privacy OK?
  32. 32. Type of questions for a newcomer – Which kind of password? – Which activities are accepted? – Which are forbidden? – To which category this person belongs? – When do we have to give the authorization?? – What control do we need ? – Could we demonstrate in court our procedure?
  33. 33. 24 IAM triple A Authentication WHO ARE YOU? Authorization / Access Control WHAT CAN YOU DO? Audit WHAT HAVE YOU DONE? 24
  34. 34. Components of IAM • Administration – User Management – Password Management – Workflow – Delegation • Access Management – Authentication – Authorization • Identity Management – Account Provisioning – Account Deprovisioning – Synchronisation Reliable Identity Data Administration Authorization Authentication Source: Identity and Access Management: OverviewRafal Lukawiecki - Strategic Consultant, Project Botticelli Ltd

  51. 51. 6. Cloud computing
  52. 52. First, What the heck is Cloud Computing First, what the heck is Cloud Computing? …in simple, plain English please! Andy Harjanto I’m cloud confused
  53. 53. Let’s use a simple analogy Say you just moved to a city, and you’re looking for a nice place to live Andy Harjanto I’m cloud confused
  54. 54. You can either Build a house or Rent an apartment Andy Harjanto I’m cloud confused
  55. 55. If you build a house, there are a few important decisions you have to make… Andy Harjanto I’m cloud confused
  56. 56. How big is the house? are you planning to grow a large family? Andy Harjanto I’m cloud confused
  57. 57. Remodel, addition typically cost a lot more once the house is built Andy Harjanto I’m cloud confused
  58. 58. But, you get a chance to customize it Roof Andy Harjanto I’m cloud confused
  59. 59. Once the house is built, you’re responsible for maintenance Hire Landscaper Electrician Plumber Pay property tax Electricity Water Gutter Cleaning Heating and Cooling House Keeping Andy Harjanto I’m cloud confused
  60. 60. How about renting?
  61. 61. Consider a builder in your city builds a Huge number of apartment units Andy Harjanto I’m cloud confused
  62. 62. A unit can easily be converted into a 2,3,4 or more units Andy Harjanto I’m cloud confused
  63. 63. You make a fewer, 
 simpler decisions You can start with one unit and grow later, or downsize Andy Harjanto I’m cloud confused
  64. 64. But… You do not have a lot of options to customize your unit Andy Harjanto I’m cloud confuse d
  65. 65. However, builders provide you with 
 very high quality infrastructure high speed Internet high capacity electricity triple pane windows green materials
  66. 66. No need to worry about maintenance Andy Harjanto I’m cloud confused
  67. 67. Just pay your rent and utilities Pay as You Go Andy Harjanto I’m cloud confused
  68. 68. Let’s translate to Cloud Computing?
  69. 69. As an end-consumer, believe it or not you’ve been using Cloud for long times Andy Harjanto I’m cloud confused
  70. 70. most of them are Free
  71. 71. In return, you’re willing to give away your information for ads and other purposes
  72. 72. But you’ve been enjoying High Reliability Service Limited Storage Connecting, Sharing
  73. 73. OK, Now tell that to the business owner Give up your data, then you can use this infrastructure for free
  74. 74. Are You crazy? will answer the CEO
  75. 75. My Business Needs… Security Privacy Reliability High Availability
  76. 76. Building Enterprise Software Stone Wall Fire-proof Moat Army Death Hole is like…. Medieval Castle Andy Harjanto I’m cloud confused
  77. 77. Let’s Hire an Army of IT Engineers Software Upgrade Support Backup/Restore Service Pack Development Network issues Andy Harjanto I’m cloud confused
  78. 78. Let’s Build Huge Data Center Capacity Planning Disaster Plan Cooling Management Server Crashes Andy Harjanto I’m cloud confused
  79. 79. Your data is replicated 3 or 4 times in their data center High Availability
  80. 80. Adding “servers” is a click away. Running in just minutes, not days HighTraffic?
  81. 81. It can even load balance your server traffic
  82. 82. Expect your Cloud Network is always up
  83. 83. Yes, you can even pick where your data and “servers” reside Don’t forget data privacy issues
  84. 84. So we know what Cloud is and the choice we have
  85. 85. Cloud Computing: Definition • No Unique Definition or General Consensus about what Cloud Computing is … • Different Perspectives & Focuses (Platform, SW, Service Levels…) • Flavours: ✦Computing and IT Resources Accessible Online ✦Dynamically Scalable Computing Power ✦Virtualization of Resources ✦Abstraction of IT Infrastructure ✦ ! No need to understand its implementation: use Services & their APIs ✦Some current players, at the Infrastructure & Service Level: ✦, Google Apps, Amazon, Yahoo, Microsoft, IBM, HP, etc.

  86. 86. Cloud Computing: Implications • Enterprise: Paradigm Shift from “Close & Controlled” IT Infrastructures and Services to Externally Provided Services and IT Infrastructures • Private User: Paradigm Shift from Accessing Static Set of Services to Dynamic & Composable Services • General Issues: – Potential Loss of Control (on Data, Infrastructure, Processes, etc.) – Data & Confidential Information Stored in The Clouds – Management of Identities and Access (IAM) in the Cloud – Compliance to Security Practice and Legislation – Privacy Management (Control, Consent, Revocation, etc.) – New Threat Environments – Reliability and Longevity of Cloud & Service Providers

  87. 87. Identity in the Cloud: Enterprise Case Issues and Risks [1/2] 
 • Potential Proliferation of Required Identities & Credentials to Access Services ! Misbehaviours when handling credentials (writing down, reusing, sharing, etc.) • Propagation of Identity and Personal Information across Multiple Clouds/Services ! Privacy issues (e.g. compliance to multiple Legislations, Importance of Location, etc.) ! Exposure of business sensitive information (employees’ identities, roles, organisational structures, enterprise apps/services, etc.) ! How to effectively Control this Data? • Delegation of IAM and Data Management Processes to Cloud and Service Providers ! How to get Assurance that these Processes and Security Practice are Consistent with Enterprise Policies? ! How to deal with overall Compliance and Governance issues?

  101. 101. Control ?
  102. 102. 8. E-discovery
  103. 103. Definition of e-discovery • Electronic discovery (or e-discovery) refers to discovery in civil litigation which deals with information in electronic format also referred to as Electronically Stored Information (ESI). • It means the collection, preparation, review and production of electronic documents in litigation discovery. • Any process in which electronic data is sought, located, secured, and searched with the intent of using it as evidence in a civil or criminal legal case • This includes e-mail, attachments, and other data stored on a computer, network, backup or other storage media. e-Discovery includes metadata.
  104. 104. Recommandations Organizations should update and/or create information management policies and procedures that include: – e-mail retention policies, On an individual level, employees tend to keep information on their hard drives “just in case” they might need it. – Work with users to rationalize their storage requirements and decrease their storage budget. – off-line and off-site data storage retention policies, – controls defining which users have access to which systems andunder what circumstances, – instructions for how and where users can store data, and • backup and recovery procedures. – Assessments or surveys should be done to identify business functions, data repositories, and the systems that support them. – Legal must be consulted. Organizations and their legal teams should work together to create and/or update their data retention policies and procedures for managing litigation holds.
  105. 105. • Information security is a legal question, not only business & IT • compliance is important • More security due to – Cloud computing – Virtualisation – Data privacy – archiving • Transparency • E-discovery
  106. 106. IAM could be an opportunity • Rethink security • risks reduction • costs reduction • precise roles & responsibilities
