CIEM 101: Understanding CIEM Fundamentals for Effective Multicloud Security Enablement

In 2020, Gartner® introduced CIEM (Cloud Infrastructure Entitlements Management) as part of its latest Hype Cycle. Since then, as nearly all organizations have adopted hybrid or multicloud infrastructures, CIEM has emerged as an essential enabler in securing access and entitlements across the Cloud. The task of enabling this visibility can be daunting for IT professionals at all levels causing confusion and integration complexities.
In this webinar, we will discuss real-world examples of how the CIEM market has been evolving since its inception, as a means of helping organizations fill the gaps left during their rapid Cloud migration. We will also evaluate and discuss some industry best practices for both implementation and operationalization of CIEM within organizations’ current infrastructure to enable visibility, improve security, and enhance ROI.

Who Should Attend?

This webinar is for you if you or your organization has concerns, questions, or confusion about your overall Cloud security and access control strategies.  Whether you are a non-technical senior executive, or a highly technical IT professional, we will share and define industry best practices and governance standards on how CIEM fits in to your organization’s hybrid or multicloud infrastructure.
