Setting the Groundwork for IAM in the Cloud
Before considering cloud computing, it's essential to make sure you have your existing IAM program under control. While every CSO and security manager understands that IAM is critical to the long-term success of any security strategy, they often get bogged down with technical minutiae and lose sight of the issues that can drive a successful IAM program. There are three strategic issues/questions that need to be identified within an organization to ensure that your IAM strategy will succeed in the cloud:
- Identify the business drivers for identity management.
- Identify interoperability requirements: More specifically, which standards you will likely need to support.
- Identify cloud use cases for your identity and access management project.
This presentation will address the details that should be considered for each of those areas, and provide guidance as to some common answers to questions that arise when extending an IAM program to the cloud.
