Hear how Government departments are meeting contemporary digital user expectations, reducing development time and eliminating potential security gaps to place for employees, citizens and other user identities.

Register your interest to join an insightful and productive luncheon with FST Government & OKTA, together with 10-15 leading technologists, experience designers and security leaders from across the Federal Public Sector to discuss ‘Exploring ‘Identity first’ digital transformation: Providing secure & seamless access for all users’.  

Joining us will be Ravi Jayaprakash, Senior Solutions Engineer at Okta. Ravi is a Senior Solutions Engineer at Okta with over 19 years of experience in the IT industry. He has been providing solution and architecture recommendations for various federal government departments for the last 8 years. Ravi has worked for leading systems integrators and service providers in various verticals including enterprise, government, healthcare, education, mining and finance across the country. He has achieved industry credentials such as TOGAF and CCIE.

Why ‘identity first’ digital transformation is critical:

  • How Government departments can scale rapidly to meet User needs
  • Service access – any Device, any Technology, any App, for any User
  • Deliver seamless & unified experiences across your network
  • Security and UX are not mutually exclusive, internally or externally

As the general community becomes accustomed to seamless, consistent and high-quality digital experiences in their personal digital life, they are increasingly expecting the same level of service from their government, regardless of the device or channel they use.

To meet these high expectations, reduce development time and eliminate potential security gaps, government agencies need to put employee, citizen and other user identities at the centre of their future plans.  But remember, having secure access is counterproductive if users find the experience of digital access too difficult and frustrating.  Ideally, you want the right people to have the right access to the right resources with minimal friction.

In the public sector, the User could be citizens, internal agency employees, former employees, users at other agencies, and many others.  For example, CDO Technologies relied on Okta to raise the US Air Force’s security position by transitioning their entire Human Resources (A1) data centre to the cloud. This effort helped to centralise identity and access management for up to 5 million users annually, including active Air Force personnel, reservists, contractors, civilian employees, and retirees.

Utilising the power of modern cloud technologies enables the creation of secure, scalable repositories designed specifically to store and manage user information.  With cloud-based Customer Identity Access Management, strong security and great usability no longer have to be on opposite ends of the spectrum.
