Identity and Access Management Topics at EDUCAUSE 2012

The National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) has certainly brought to light the importance of an international dialogue about the role of identity and access management (IAM) in helping to enable online services and improve cybersecurity. At the campus level, there is a need for an enterprise strategy on IAM to enable single sign-on, authenticate users, limit access to authorized individuals, and federate with other service providers. Movement away from on-campus systems to externally hosted systems and cloud providers make the need for robust identity management even more important.

The annual EDUCAUSE Conference in Denver will provide an opportunity to explore the range and depth of issues that campuses must consider as they build their enterprise IAM strategy.  Below are the sessions that we would encourage you to attend.
