Building a correct consumer identity and access management (CIAM) strategy is a real challenge and an integral cornerstone of any digital transformation process. CIAM mainly focuses on connecting consumers, managing and securing consumer data, and analyzing identity behaviors to provide a more engaged customer experience. GDPR is a real challenge and forces business to rethink and redefine their CIAM strategies.

This session will mainly focus on discussing the key challenges in building the GDPR complaint CIAM strategy and best practices. It will cover the following areas:

  • The role of a CIAM strategy in digital transformation
  • Connecting with consumers through self-service registration and social registration
  • Consumer identification and verifications
  • GDPR impact on CIAM strategy
  • Roadmap for GDPR compliance
