Spotlight On Identity Management: Identity Management at USC: Collaboration, Governance, and Access

Friday, August 8, 2008


Identity and access management (IAM) at USC has been a policy-driven, grassroots effort for the past five years. During that time collaborative committees with representatives from many academic and administrative units have enabled the accelerated growth of applications relying on identity data while governing the release of that data. With the backing of the university data stewards in the offices of the registrar, provost, and personnel services , policies have been implemented regarding the release of identifying sensitive information to both internal departments and external vendors. The speakers will discuss the composition of these committees, the governance policies that have been implemented, and some of the dozens of applications that have been enabled securely through this process.
