Best Practices in Identity Access Management for Education

Wednesday, March 28 | 2:30PM–3:15PM ET | Room 550
Session Type: Breakout Session
The higher education IT ecosystem comprises a large-scale, complex web of users and apps, which makes identity and access management for institutions challenging, costly, and time-consuming. Everything begins with identity. In this session, we will explore using best practices in identity access management; connecting to your existing infrastructure and the tools of tomorrow; supporting standards (SAML, Open ID Connect, and WS-Fed) for integration into existing infrastructure like Shibboleth; reducing password management risk by centralizing identity; employing multifactor authentication methods to achieve strong identity assurance; and protecting your sensitive data with policy management, regardless of where or how it is accessed.
Outcomes: Learn strategies for reducing password risk while providing an excellent student experience * Understand how IAM can support accelerated secure cloud adoption
