There were two break out sessions at the CIC Identity Conference.
The first was a breakout By Peer Groups. In this break out, Registrars sat together, CIOs sat together, etc. I was in the IT Idenity Management peer group. There were strong themes that came up during this discussion. Interestingly, the strongest themes were around:
- Governance – how do you establish it on campus, how do you get buy in, who should be on the governance board,
- Communication – the need for a common vocabulary for communicating with campus about Identity Management.
- CAF Credential Assessment Framework PDF – Especially as a tool to find gaps in the infrastructure and as a communication tool with campus. If the campus want’s to use FASTLANE and NIH Grants and other applications, we will have to fill these gaps that are identified in the CAF Process.
- Mapping of Levels of Assurance to Risk Assessments for various applications. Development of a Framework to map LOAs to Risk Levels for Applications.
