White Paper Examines Importance of Identity Governance for Federal Agencies

The “Cybersecurity Sprint” of July 2015, launched by the White House in the wake of major breaches at the Office of Personal Management (OPM), was critical to efforts to improve the security of Federal IT systems. Federal agencies made significant progress in this initial 30 day sprint, closing the vulnerabilities associated with passwords and pushing agencies to increase their use of two-factor authentication to mitigate the risk of stolen credentials. However, it is important that agencies do not simply check the two-factor authentication box and proclaim they have “solved” identity security.

A new white paper, “Securing Identity Does Not Stop with Strong Authentication,” produced in collaboration between The Chertoff Group and SailPoint, a leading independent identity and access management (IAM) provider, seeks to inform the conversation around the importance of identity governance for federal agencies.
