Identity & Access Governance (IAG): Building the Business Case & Implementation
Many companies are making IAG projects a high priority because of the business benefits the governance-based approach delivers. In this session, Rabobank International’s Global head of security operations, Jethro Cornelissen, presents an IAG case study and discusses best practices for demonstrating business value in each phase of an IAG implementation.
Deployment of a Role Based Access Identity Management System in a University Hospital
François-Pierre Regamey, CIO of CHUV, a large Swiss university hospital, will describe how Identity Management takes a central part in CHUV's strategic drive toward digital healthcare.
The presentation will cover the strategic and practical aspects of Identity management deployment in a hospital. It will present the lessons learned, main recommendations and key success factors.
CHUV's strategic plan calls for a strong development and integration of the hospital's health information through the deployment of a hospital wide electronic patient record. Health personnel, including 1,400 MDs, must access 200 applications from CHUV's 8,000 workstations. The growing role of IT in the quality of care creates confidentiality risks - therefore efficient identity management is mandatory to find a balance between security and ease of access.
The project required a technical implementation, but also a streamlining of the hospital's authorization procedures. An important aspect was an inventory and redefinition of stakeholders, roles, authorizations rules and procedures. As a guideline, Identity Management must target the simplicity and speed of the hospital's most common and critical processes, such as patient arrival, temporary health practitioner authorization and personnel move.
Based in Lausanne, Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois (CHUV) is one of Switzerland's largest university hospitals with over 1,400 beds,10,300 employees and 4'000 external consultants.
