Identity Management Challenges
There are many factors contributing to the growing need for technical identity management professionals. Changes in the business environment including the adoption of cloud solutions and IoT systems, the need to develop creative IAM solutions that incorporate new technologies such as artificial intelligence and blockchain for identity management, and, business needs to select and implement emerging IAM systems necessitate the employment of qualified and certified technical IAM experts.
The changing threat, technology solutions, compliance, and standards landscape requires technical experts to apply IAM best practices in their roles when developing and implementing systems and technical solutions. CIMP is not as much about teaching IAM experts about technical skills such as coding as it is about teaching technical experts about IAM risk awareness and best practices.
