Identity and access management (IAM) is the security discipline that enables the right individuals to access the right resources at the right times for the right reasons. The IAM addresses the mission-critical need to ensure appropriate access to university resources across increasingly heterogeneous technology environments, and to meet increasingly rigorous compliance requirements. The goal of the IAM program is to implement an IAM platform to address University of Utah and University of Utah Health needs to manage identity and access issues for internal and external users.
