As a foundational capability, Identity and Access Management is becoming more critical to effective government services and missions, and central to modernizing information technology to achieve security and efficiency goals. The US Government is energizing ICAM/IdAM by establishing aggressive policy, standards, and goals to strengthen identity proofing, credentialing, authentication, and authorization as a core feature of broader modernization efforts. Sweeping modernization prioritizes shifting services to the cloud and embracing mobility as the new normal. Supporting citizen-facing services and government missions offer commercial providers and vendors significant challenges at scale. This track will dive into the changes in Federal direction, and explore innovative approaches to scaling modern solutions with an improved assurance model for identity.

Following the White House/Office of Management and Budget view in Ms Kent’s Federal CIO keynote, Trish Janssen will describe a Federal Agency's view. She will describe the conditions and opportunities that led to the new DoD Identity, Credential, and Access Management Strategy. Enabling the National Defense Strategy Goals to improve lethality, strengthen alliances, and reform the department requires significant modernization of DoD ICAM policies, governance, architecture, services, and capabilities.
