2. The Manifest access management service: current state and future plans (includes Q&A) [20 min]
(Paul Donahue, DoIT Enterprise Internet Services)
The Manifest group access management service currently has the ability to grant NetID’s to populations beyond UW-Madison faculty, staff, students, and selected “special authorizations.” It will soon have the ability to connect those groups with IT services offered all over campus. This allows departments to rely less on locally management credentials, with the attendant savings in effort, increased availability of federated resources, improved security, and more seamless user experience.
Use of personally owned devices, a.k.a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), isn’t something new, we’ve been doing it for years, but increased use of such devices, increased security threat levels, and increased regulatory and legal requirements have made management of such devices a hot issue in both corporate and educational settings. We need to ask ourselves, “How should UW-Madison respond to these challenges?”
4. BYOD small group discussion [40 min]
Discussion question: In an environment where BYOD is ubiquitous, what are some things campus or departments could do to fulfill our obligations to protect university data and manage university records that are stored or accessed by such devices?
6. Closing and evaluations
