Thanks to everyone who participated in our last week’s twitter chat on Mobile Identity Management. Whether your organization has already embraced the mobile culture (offering applications on mobile, allowing seamless access to specific resources via mobile or enabling BYOD) or is exploring to do so, mobile security has become top of mind for most security and IT professionals. So, we thank the participants for taking some time to share their thoughts and perspective on this topic.
During #MobileIDM chat, the discussion ranged from how far mobile authentication will go and whether it can be adopted as sole factor in user authentication to whether the current industry standards support mobile uptake. Since the conversation invited participation from organizations who have or are looking to securely enable mobile, as well as industry analysts, thought leaders, implementation experts and other solution providers, we good a good range of best practices and advice on defining, managing and executing security policies that can extend to mobile.
Here is the link to the discussion archive if you missed the live event or if the tweets were zipping by too fast on your screen and you’d like to catch the full set.
We must admit, we are hooked to twitter chats! Both the #MobileIDM chat as well as the #Authchat discussion that we hosted in January enjoyed participation from Identity Management (IDM) enthusiasts around the world. (And a big shout-out to the APAC conversation participants who couldn’t join in during the live event due to the time difference but chimed in the next day.) As a result, the IDM community now has two rich sources of information (& perspectives) to rely on. To focus specifically on privacy, @OracleIDM will host a live twitter conversation with Dr. Ann Cavoukian, Ontario Commissioner of Information and Privacy and a well known privacy expert on Thursday, April 4 at 10 am PDT/ 1 pm EDT. If you have questions on privacy you’d like to ask the Commissioner, send those to @OracleIDM using #PrivQA.
And, as always, we look forward to your feedback. If you have topics in mind you’d like the IDM community to weigh in, send those our way and perhaps we can incorporate in our tweet chat schedule.
