We are at a unique period in the history of human technological progress, marked by our use of machines to do almost every task around us. To some, this is a frightening prospect, with machines threatening jobs and putting us at risk. To others, it is a thrilling opportunity to advance business and science and many other fields by leveraging the power of machine intelligence. In the end it does not matter if we love this future or not—it is simply inevitable.

George Danner has spent the last 5 years researching every angle of the automation lexicon, from building automated systems to using automation wisely in business. His book, The Executive's How-To Guide to Automation summarizes his findings from examining many different industries and their approaches to automation. Along the way George learned a few foundational principles of automation that he will share with the audience through the lens of actual case examples.

With organizations looking to fully leverage their investment in PeopleSoft, strategies to enhance PeopleSoft’s mobility have proven to be a key priority. However, expanding users’ access to PeopleSoft comes with the additional access points that can put data at risk, and the objective to maintain strict data security policies must accompany any mobility projects. Balancing the desire for added mobility and productivity, with this increased threat exposure can be daunting, but is necessary to tackle both in tandem.

As access potentially moves outside the corporate firewall, organizations must focus on application-level security to protect themselves from malicious outsiders, privilege-abusing insiders, and inadvertent data leakage. In this insightful session, PeopleSoft security professionals Greg Wendt and JD Bell will demonstrate how to:

Protect your publicly-facing PeopleSoft applications from cybercriminals gaining access through phished credentials or brute force attacks
Embed two-factor authentication within PeopleSoft to restrict access to sensitive systems and information
Dynamically control access to systems handling sensitive information based on the context of request (corporate/remote network, known/unknown device, etc.)
Monitor suspicious activity that occurs outside normal business hours.
Leverage data visualization to execute on-going risk management strategies

We will walk the audience through the process we began in 2013 to implement Self-Service, which stalled as quick as it started.  But in July of 2017 we embarked on the journey once again.  We have a lot of  functional and technical experience in house but there was so much to learn.   Many decisions had to be made; 2 Factor authentication or just user id and password,   Third party vendor for 2 factor or develop with Peopletools.  Text or Email authentication code, and how to force User Profile Setup and how do we manage higher volume support.   Working with the business Leadership we decide to secure the infrastructure and then begin rolling out more functions in 2018.  Upgrading our Peopletools to 8.56 and learning to work with Fluid pages, Tile creation, branding and new Peoplecode events.  Finally, the outcome our success, our lessons and hints for anyone else looking to implement Self-service outside their firewall.
