Information Security Framework, Phase 1
Executive Sponsor: Helen Patton, CISO, The Ohio State University
Project Team: Gary Clark, Jim Herbeck, Matt Williams, Charlie Smith and Amber Buening
Location: Columbus, OH

The Information Security Framework project implemented the “Information Security Management System (ISMS) across the Ohio State University. The problem: how to engage over 129 independent business units, each with their own distributed IT departments, budgets and business priorities. With a total project budget of only $270,000 the project team implemented a new framework, encouraged 98% of units to voluntarily participate in a one month survey to establish a maturity baseline, engaged non-IT unit leaders in assuming responsibility for their information risks, and raised the Information Risk Management bar for higher education institutions across the United States.

USAA continues to innovate in security, first with two-factor “Quick Logon” and now by providing a game changing experience of using facial or voice biometrics as a convenient and secure means of logging onto the USAA Mobile Application. This capability expands on our existing use of an embedded security token with our biometrics technology, eliminating the need for static usernames and passwords while improving the overall logon experience. This giant step directly addresses safeguarding personal information being harvested from data breaches and social engineering, by focusing on what you have and who you are and not on what you know.

Next Generation Identity and Access Management

Waste Management built a fully business-integrated access management solution that allows business users to participate in identity governance. Provisioning and de-provisioning for over 60 applications was built out, including for application-specific roles, eliminating tens of thousands manual steps per year. Approval is tied to the financial structures of the company, and as those structures change, the approval flow changes in real time. Additionally, roles for high-turnover jobs and web-based certifications were created, saving countless hours of work throughout the company. Automated password reset, integrated with the web and IVR, eliminated thousands of tickets from our help desk.
