Credential Service Provider Selection
Delivering services securely is mission-critical for every federal agency.
Apart from OMB guidance to leverage CSPs rather than standing up their own credential services, CSPs bring significant benefits to federal agencies. They specialize in staying current with evolving threats and ever-changing compliance mandates from NIST and other federal guidance. CSPs also typically include a help desk, which can potentially deliver significant cost reductions. From a user perspective, CSPs typically mean less frequent identity proofing and fewer separate credentials to manage. CSPs also specialize in improved user experiences , offering a multitude of proofing options to serve a wide range of demographics and their preferences.
Optimizing Your ICAM Experience
While our process starts with basics like FedRAMP compliance and integration with existing technologies, we also conduct an in-depth examination into the CSP’s validation process and their policies for securing and using sensitive information. The ultimate goal is to ensure a successful partnership than can build and maintain a reputation of trust for your service. In addition, Accelerated CSP Selection can also establish key metrics such as user engagement and drop-off, helping you evaluate the effectiveness of your program and reach government-mandated standards for high assurance deployments and user base.
