Troy Moreland, CTO, to Discuss Pitfalls and Risks of One Size Fits All Authentication

Identity Automation, a leading provider of Identity and Access Management software, announced today that Troy Moreland, CTO of Identity Automation, will be speaking about alternative approaches to “one size fits all” authentication at the CoSN Annual Conference on Tuesday, April 5, in Washington D.C. The company’s security experts will also be available to meet with school IT staff and administrators at Identity Automation’s booth (#45).

A “one size fits all” approach to authentication that doesn’t account for individual risk factors has proven ineffective for managing student, teacher, parent, and faculty access to the digital learning environment. This limited approach negatively impacts usability, security, efficiency, and compliance. More sophisticated and user-focused authentication methods, that better strike a balance between usability and security, are now readily available and no longer cost-prohibitive. By using multi-factor, adaptive, and age-appropriate authentication methods, school administrators and IT staff can customize user access while adding an additional layer of security.

What: Troy Moreland will discuss the pitfalls and risks of using a “one size fits all” strategy, as well as the benefits of using multi-factor, age appropriate, and adaptive authentication to efficiently and securely streamline identity management. He will also explain how to jump-start implementation of a user-centric authentication strategy today.

Who: Identity Automation’s Troy Moreland is a world-class expert technologist in the field of identity and access management. He has more than 20 years of relevant experience, including leading efforts to select, design, and deploy one of the first commercially successful identity management implementations in the United States.

When: Tuesday, April 5, 2016 from 11:15 - 11:45 am

Where: Washington Hilton Hotel, Holmead West Conference Room
