After the Smartcard, What's Next?

About this talk

Rapid change is standard in the information security field, but fundamental transformation is taking place in the area of identity and access management (IAM). In the Federal Government, the HSPD-12 smartcard has created a foundation for profound improvement in government IAM efforts that dramatically enhance the overall security posture. Now that employees and contractors have smartcards, what's next? Most organizations turn their attention to automating provisioning and de-provisioning of user identity in critical systems, but these are just the bookends to the user's relationship with the organization. The multiple relationships between an individual and the organization are the focus of enterprise entitlement management (EEM), which address automated solutions to provision, modify, deprovision, and track identity and entitlements throughout the user's entire lifecycle. EEM is the key to unlocking the true potential of a smartcard. This presentation examines the compelling business and security benefits of EEM and the reasons why it should be a fundamental part of your identity and access management strategy.
