NDSU chief information technology security officer Theresa Semmens and senior software engineer Richard Frovarp recently presented at a webinar panel discussion on “Aligning Identity and Access Management With Your Information Security Program.” Other presenters included information technology staff from Columbia University in New York City and from the University of Wisconsin – Madison.
