Identity Leadership Certificate Program Spring 2018

Hosted by the Center for Identity at The University of Texas

This Identity Leadership certificate program offered by the Center for Identity at The University of Texas gives you the knowledge and skills to lead the complex business of identity – from assets, liabilities, planning, operations and workforce.

The importance of identity—belonging to an individual, an organization, or a device—has become a critical issue for all aspects of our society. Organizations from almost every market sector imaginable—consumer services, financial services, education, healthcare, energy, military, law enforcement, to name a few—collect Personal Identifiable Information (PII) and use it to uniquely identify people, corporations, government agencies and sometimes devices. With the growth of e-commerce, social networking, online banking, electronic health records, and the increased presence of government agencies online, the issues surrounding identity authentication, authorization, and management are growing quickly, as is the need for professionals trained to address those issues.

You will learn to:

  • Leverage your identity assets
  • Identify your organization’s identity risks
  • Lead a multi-disciplinary team required to manage the legal, policy, communications, business operations and technology of identity
  • Innovate and excel using the new currency called Identity

Who Should Attend

Executives, managers and professionals currently responsible for identity assets or seeking to lead organizations with identity management, security and privacy challenges and solutions.

In your organization, these roles might include: • HR managers • Customer service managers • Corporate fraud investigation personnel • Privacy and compliance managers • Information technology staff • Information security managers • Intelligence analysts • Data scientists • Marketing managers • Sales managers

Why You Should Attend

  • Get a certificate from top-tier university and national center of excellence
  • Study with industry leaders and expert UT CID faculty and staff
  • Examine real-world case studies from industry leaders
  • Learn about identity security and privacy in all of its dimensions: people, processes, policy and technology
