๐Ÿ’ก Digital Identity and Authentication

Article

Time to go through the concepts of Digital Identity and Authentication, and how they are generally implemented in IT environments to automate access to websites, services and applications.

While this article does not require any specific technical knowledge, it is not a trivial topic, and I have purposely tried to not oversimplify some of the concepts. I have done my best to keep it easy to read, but feel free to send some feedback if some parts are too complex and you would like further clarifications.

CPS 234 NSW Morning Briefing

I am looking forward to be one of the speakers at the CPS 234 NSW Morning Briefing in Sydney on 20/02/2020 with 3 great experts: Neil Hopkins, Susie Costa and Wayne Bozza.

With the passing of the July 1st deadline, ARPA regulated entities must meet the mandatory Prudential Standard CPS 234. The Standards have been created to improve resilience against information security threats, and those entities need to put the correct implementation strategy in place to safeguard themselves in the information age.

A key objective is to minimise the likelihood and impact of information security incidents on the confidentiality, integrity or availability of information assets, including information assets managed by related parties or third parties.
