Securing the Nation’s most Sensitive Assets
How do Identity Governance and Access Management provide protections for federal civilian systems and data? The federal civilian government is one of the largest enterprises in the world and protecting that enterprise is a monumental task. Since 2012 the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) Program at the Department of Homeland Security has been assisting agencies across the entire federal civilian government by providing tools and sensors, services and dashboards that help agencies employees and executives to reduce risk. The government understands that Identity, Credential and Access Management (ICAM) is essential to this effort and has long been a leader in providing assured credentials for employees and contractors accessing federal networks. With the advent of mobile devices and the increasing prevalence of the use of cloud services the perimeter that requires protection is defined by the identity of the user. In this presentation we will present how CDM has been and continues to be one of the main programs that government has for protecting federal systems and data, how the program addresses ICAM needs across the government, and how those needs become more reliant on Identity as the use of cloud services and mobile devices increase.
