Higher Education

Managing identity lifecycles can be especially challenging for colleges and universities because they typically deal with a diverse and rapidly changing population that requires access to physical and soft assets.

Higher Education organizations share several common IAM challenges:

  • Federated access for strategic organizational relationships
  • Multiple personas for the same identity
  • Managing access to a wide variety of educational resources
  • Effective access certification for a population with high turnover
  • Timely access revocation for resources no longer needing access

Students come and go, often requiring bulk account creations or disabling of access. Staff people may also be students, students may also be contractors, each person having multiple relationships to the organization. Each relationship must be tracked and each has its own access rules and requirements.

Access requirements for college or university populations vary greatly based on the user’s role, risk and relationship. A standard of minimum access necessary can only be achieved by clearly defining role, identity risk and relationship data up front. Regularly certifying this access through various automated and self-service methods can help control risk to the organization’s data in a more meaningful way than minimum regulatory compliance demands.
