Identity Services: The new name of Identity and Access Management

UFIT recently changed the name of a unit every Gator interacts with, whether they know it or not: Identity and Access Management (IAM), which is now known as Identity Services. The Identity Services group is part of the UF Information Security Office.

“The name change reflects the complete range of the services provided, the increase in unit visibility and the important responsibilities entrusted to this group,” said UF’s Chief Information Security Officer Rob Adams.

Identity Services oversees the technologies and capabilities that ensure UF employees have access to the appropriate applications, services and data based on their authorized rights to do so. Identity Services helps ensure that only people who should be accessing student records or UF financial data are able to do so, for example. Common access controls can be assigned for specific UF job functions, such as a program assistant, business manager, consultant or others, including students.
