Topic: Identity Management Overview and Best Practices
Speaker: Steve Kruse - Director, Clango


IAM allows enterprises to answer questions like: "What does this user have access to?". Unfortunately, many IAM deployments are not successful due to the complexity of the problem, lack of buy-in from other departments/divisions, little value realized, and other factors. Ironically, the move to the cloud makes identity management a more pressing issue for organizations today vs. a decade ago. Clango and other organizations have compiled a set of "best practices" from top performing companies doing Identity Management and call it an "Identity Index." Enterprises can compare their Identity Management programs against what these top performers are doing. Categories for this Index include: Identity, Governance, Asset Management, Metrics and Risk. Steve will discuss the Index and provide case studies that have been successful for organizations adopting, implementing and operationalizing Identity Management.


Steve Kruse is a Director with Clango. He holds CGEIT, CISM and CISSP certifications and is the SF ISACA CGEIT Coordinator. His BS in Information Systems is from the University of San Francisco. Steve has worked in the information security field since 1989. A founding board member of the PKI Forum, Steve has presented at RSA Conferences on "Why isn't my DLP working?", "Balanced Scorecard and Information Security" and moderated at the 2018 Conference in April, 2018 on "Issues of Quantifying Risk Around Identity and Access Management (IAM)".
