Learning Objectives

s         Provision of a Management View − the workshop aims to present a broad picture of the components of Identity Management, their derivation and relative importance.

s         Common Prat-falls − the workshop will look at some of the stumbling blocks that may delay or derail Identity Management projects embarked on by the unwary.

s         Where to start − the workshop will provide participants considering an entrance into the world of identity management with an understanding of the methods, tools and approaches that will help achieve a successful outcome

s         Amount of work involved and skill sets required − the workshop will help participants gain a idea of the level of effort required to launch an Identity Management initiative, the amount of perseverance required, the attitudes and skills, both soft and hard, necessary to see it through to a successful conclusion.

 

Audience

 

This workshop is aimed at those who wish to gain a rounded view of Identity Management i.e. those who already have a knowledge of aspects of the subject but who need to get the full picture or those new to the discipline.

Identity Management as a discipline sits on the interface between management and technology.  The audience for this master-class is therefore expected to be a mix of managerial staff with some technical competence and technical staff with managerial responsibility.
