Session Track
Cybersecurity & Identity Management
Brief Presentation Description
Too often Identity and Access Management (IAM) services and technology are an afterthought, “middleware” that is thought to be functioning best when it is inconspicuous. However, many of the most pressing challenges in higher education are converging on an institutions capability to provide quick, seamless, and secure access to IT services and data. Non-traditional academic programs, DEI initiatives, Zero Trust security architecture, human-centered digital experience and workforce (day 1) readiness all depend on the capacity to leverage identity information while protecting privacy. Selecting and migrating to a new ERP platform can be extremely disruptive to current IAM services and put an institution’s strategic initiatives at risk, including ERP projects. However, thoughtful ERP readiness planning that includes IAM program improvements can convert your IAM technology problem into an opportunity to achieve continuous improvement that transforms your digital campus and user experience.

This presentation will draw upon resent experiences of HESS member institutions efforts to improve their IAM programs as part of ERP preparation, including: IAM awareness, institutional collaboration, data governance and standardization, IAM platform selection, and more.
