Identity management and credential technologies in government environments aim to provide fast and secure access to information, systems, and physical locations. But the seeming simplicity of single sign-on and smart cards requires well-conceived architectures and effective technology implementations on backend systems. Government IT teams have begun to implement ID management, but they still have a long way to go.
In this editorial webcast for government IT pros, InformationWeek Government will provide an update on the Federal Identity, Credential, and Access Management initiative, the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace, and other programs, and on agency efforts to meet those objectives. Our expert speakers will discuss the challenges and opportunities of ID management and strategies for successful projects.
In this webcast, we will:
- Review key ID management initiatives and requirements
- Discuss ways to extend ID management to the cloud and other new technologies
- Assess the role of ID management in an agency's enterprise security strategy
- Evaluate how PIV cards and electronic credentials can be used for mobile access
- Analyze building security and access control within facilities
- Answer your questions on policy and implementation
