Enterprise role management is quickly becoming a critical technology for enabling organizations to verify and enforce regulatory policies and to audit the effectiveness of internal controls over user access. Unfortunately, complexity and marketplace confusion impedes companies in their search for an approach that delivers practical and timely results.

“In the seven years since the first Digital ID World Conference, identity management technologies have reach critical mass, placing identity at the center of nearly all technology deployments,” said Eric Norlin, program chair for Digital ID World. “As companies consider best practices for approaching identity governance, it’s important for them to understand how enterprise role management can create a strong foundation for identity process and controls. A practical workshop on role management is a great addition to the conference.”

Identity management experts, including Darran Rolls, CTO of SailPoint, and Mike Neuenschwander, general manager of Mycroft’s Strategy Practice, will present real-world examples and discuss lessons learned on the following topics:

  • The role of roles in the identity GRC landscape;
  • Business drivers and use cases for role management;
  • Avoiding common pitfalls in real-world deployments;
  • Guidance for achieving practical benefits with roles; and
  • Defining the project scope to meet your specific business objectives.
