Identity Management Overview and Best Practices

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.
