Speaker Series 2011: Ron Martin to Discuss Identity, Credentialing, and Access Management (ICAM)


On Wednesday, Nov. 9 from 11:45 am to1:15 pm, the Innovation and Leadership Institute’s (ILI) Speaker Series will welcome Ron Martin, CPP, to the Avrum Gudelsky Memorial Auditorium.
Martin will provide an executive level summary of the Identity, Credentialing, and Access Management (ICAM) framework.
“This is a federal government blueprint that all Americans can be proud of – one that can be readily applied within any organization that exercises access control,” Ken Crockett, director of Capitol’s Critical Infrastructures and Cyber Protection Center, said.
The ICAM framework provides a road map that government (federal, state, local, and tribal) and industry leaders can implement in order to create a consistent approach for managing the vetting and credentialing of individuals requiring access to information systems and facilities.
Martin’s discussion will include an overview of the ICAM requirements determination, program implementation, convergence, and modernization of logical and physical access control systems.
The ILI Speaker Series is an on-going initiative created to help students and participants gain leadership and technical skills from the experiences and teachings of industry professionals.
Participants can attend in person at Capitol’s Laurel campus in Maryland, or they can attend at-a-distance via webinar. This event is free of charge. Attendees on campus and by webinar are asked to RSVP by Noon on Nov. 8
