GSA officials on standardizing data architecture and processes

“In the age of the COVID-19 pandemic, Federal experts say it is important to standardize both data architecture and processes so that people can access data from wherever they are, and better manage those architectures once they’re in place.

During ATARC’s webinar on April 1, ‘Identity-Centric Security: The New Agency Perimeter,’ Federal experts shared why these practices are important and what tools agencies can use to make the process easier.

“There is a lot of work happening right now to have standardized architectures and make those similar across government. The other thing that we need to get better at as we’re working through this, it’s not just standard architecture but also standard processes,” said Nicole Ballard, manager of identity and access management at Sandia National Laboratories…

Kenneth Myers, chief Federal ICAM architect at the General Services Administration (GSA), agreed with Ballard and said the pandemic changed the way data is accessed.

‘Identity is important when you need to access data. You want to make sure people have the right access no matter where they are, and I definitely agree that that was a challenge coming into the pandemic,’ Myers said.” Read the full article here.
