Protecting identity is foundational to zero trust, and everybody wants passwordless, but is it always appropriate? If it is, how do we overcome barriers to success, and if it isn’t, how do we protect & isolate workloads to ensure the right people have the right access to the right apps & data? Any security approach must consider the human beings it’s designed to protect, while balancing the risks of authentication strengths.
About Adrian – I’ve supported the Richmond IT community since 1997, in every capacity from retail break/fix to military & corporate Wintel infrastructure. I transitioned to cloud solutions in 2010 and was the first technical hire at Synergy way back in 2012. I have a strong focus on identity & access management and collect terribly inconvenient hobbies.
