This Wednesday, May 7th, JumpCloud® Chief Experience Officer, James Brown, will be traveling to Costa Mesa, CA to participate in the OCTANe Innovation Series on how IT admins can manage risk and cost in cloud security. OCTANe is a southern California technology group that hosts events aiming to educate and innovate those within the community.

The event will take place in the form of a panel discussion, moderated by our friend Christian Teeft, CTO of Latisys. Other participants in the discussion include Andrew Immerman, CTO of Trust Commerce, and Anoj Willy, Director of Product Development at Trace3. The discussion will be focused on the security threats facing business today with the objective of providing concrete suggestions for marrying technology, expertise, and service delivery to mitigate threats in a cost-effective way. As we know, the number one security threat facing organizations is the compromise of credentials. Online identity theft is a critical issue and one of the key reasons that JumpCloud focused on Directory-as-a-Service®. Integrated solutions for identity management in the cloud help connect users to the IT resources they need, but also lock down credentials in a significant way. James will be talking about how Identity-as-a-Service should be a core part of every organization’s security infrastructure.

From OCTANe’s site: Security threats loom large, and the push towards cloud and outsourced IT only increases the number of attack surfaces. While companies are spending more on IT security, they’re not more secure. This session will challenge the way you think about IT security. One of the greatest challenges comes from the change from well-defined network perimeter model to a model where each server may have direct Internet access.
