The PeopleSoft Security Roadmap: Achieve Strong ROI at Scale

Presented by:
Greg Wendt, Executive Director of Security Solutions, Pathlock

A post-Covid business environment forced the expansion of PeopleSoft access, which has “opened a can of worms” on multiple fronts. Specifically – securing identity, application access, and the sensitive business data residing in your PeopleSoft systems. All of these areas must be secured effectively, efficiently, and without resulting in a loss of productivity. Sounds easy, right? Of course not!
In a sea of disparate solutions for identity management, access governance (zero trust), emergency access management, and data loss prevention – it’s easy to see why organizations do nothing at all… they don’t know what to prioritize or where to start.
Join Pathlock’s session as we provide a comprehensive (and ROI-positive) roadmap for securing PeopleSoft. We will break down the challenges that come with each area of focus, provide recommendations for implementing a proactive and user-friendly strategy, and discuss what automation is available for PeopleSoft identity and access governance. All are in-service to provide you with a plan that achieves data-centric security at scale.

Auditor Approval Documentation (Finally!) Made Easier

Presented by:
Ann Bushnell, Business Systems Manager, CorVel
Eric Novak, VP Sales, Mountain West, ERPA

As a PeopleSoft client, chances are good you inherited your ERP. Being on a legacy technology doesn’t mean that you can’t optimize your PeopleSoft environments to solve for modern day business challenges, however. Join CorVel’s Business Systems Manager, Ann Bushnell, as she shares how CorVel partnered with ERPA to make PeopleSoft work for them.
