No organization’s suite of business applications is static, especially for businesses that have committed to non-stop innovation. It is not uncommon for businesses to integrate only their high-impact applications with their existing identity and access management (IAM) systems. This can cause a huge surge in manual work, and oftentimes enterprises dedicate hundreds of human agents to manage accounts, adding more as new business applications are added. Enterprises can sidestep significant costs, increase efficiency, manage risk and deliver undiscovered value, by properly leveraging automation technologies across IAM systems.
Robotic process automation (RPA) is a powerful technology that harmonizes different systems across an organization’s environment, reduces human errors, provides 24/7 operations, and relieves employees from repetitive tasks so they can focus on more valuable activities. For example, data quality management in the risk and compliance process has been a traditional pain area for many institutions, as it is very time consuming and manual. However, a cognitive RPA solution which combines machine learning capabilities can enable swift remediation of data quality issues, and the system can learn from the final decisions taken by the data analyst as well. Attend this CPE webinar for insights on:
- Getting started with an access management program.
- Evaluating the right configuration and system-based tools to automate processes at a task level, and align to your process automation strategy.
- Leveraging advanced analytics in risk management, compliance, and continuous monitoring programs.
- Embedding governance, risk management, and controls into your enterprise’s mobilization and deployment of RPA, so you can catch issues before they arise.

Colin Whittaker, PCI Industry Alumni, Founder and Director Informed Risk Decisions Ltd. Colin has been instrumental in driving forward a risk and security strategy for payments over the last 15 years since he retired from the military in 2001, and took up the role of Head of Security at APACS. At APACS he started the move to confront the reality of the threat to payment systems and the implications this has on any risk and security decisions taken. He was instrumental in helping the industry coordinate the response to the wave of e-banking attacks that started in 2004, and the development of a card based customer authentication strategy to protect e-banking channels. Whilst there he was one of the first people to be elected to the PCI SSC Board of Advisors where he was always keen to try and promote the differences in threat between Europe and UK, and the US. Since that election he hasn't moved far from the PCI domain. In 2010 he moved to Visa Europe and became the Vice President Payment System Risk with responsibilities for designing and operating the Visa Europe PCI compliance strategy for European merchants and service providers. This included contributing to the strategic development of the Council through representing Visa Europe at the PCI SSC's Executive Committee, as well as the technical development of the standards. He was also responsible for coordinating Visa Europe's approach to cardholder data breaches in Europe. Colin was responsible for the changes to the Visa Europe Compliance strategy through the creation of the Technology Innovation Programme which gave the very first PCI DSS compliance relief for EMV chip accepting merchants. He has now built on this experience by learning first-hand what PCI DSS means to merchants through his experience at Carlson Wagonlit Travel. Applying PCI DSS to probably one of the most complex industry verticals and one where it is almost impossible to spend money as a customer without using credit cards! He is now working as a freelance consultant helping retailers and service providers solve their cyber security and payment security compliance dilemmas.
