The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate's (S&T) Identity, Credential, and Access Management (ICAM) is a framework of policies built into an organization’s information technology infrastructure that allows system owners to have assurance that the right person is accessing the right information at the right time for the right reason. ICAM is adaptable to first responder needs at all levels of government. It enables first responders to focus on their essential mission functions by bringing security, scalability and interoperability through embedded policies within their systems.
The DHS S&T ICAM project has developed an educational series to help agencies learn more about implementing this framework in their everyday operations. Start with the ICAM Fact Sheet to learn more.
