Identity and Access Management Programme update

Over the course of this year the Identity and Access Management Programme has, through a number of workshops, been gathering information about the wide variety of resources available at UC, and the rules behind who gets access to them. Along with this information gathering the team has been carrying out technical reviews of systems, development of processes and policies for how Identity and Access may be managed in the future, and working through the procurement of a number of services ready for 2018.

As mentioned in our communication in September the project provided a paper to the UC governance groups detailing the activity, cost and implementation approach for the remainder of the project over 2018 and 2019 . This was paper was endorsed and approved by council in its meeting on Wednesday 25 October.

The team will continue to work on completing the 2017 activities while preparing for 2018.
