Identity and Access Management enables the creation, maintenance and use of a digital identity. With identity and access management, you are able to access the right resources at the right time for the right reasons.
Enabling members of the GW community to register the identities of individuals affiliated with GW; coordinating the related business and technical processes across affiliations to simplify the end-user experience, establish the basis for online accountability, and enables a single user profile for each person.
Issuing GW NetIDs, passwords and other login credentials to individuals affiliated within GW, and enabling them to manage their online accounts; supporting ways the GW community can sponsor GW NetID accounts for affiliated partners and collaborators.
