Who do WE think you are?: The BBC and Digital Identity

Colin Brown, Lead Identity and Access Management Delivery Architect at the BBC discusses how the broadcaster has delivered on two major identity projects.

The first, BBC Login, is aimed at providing an effective and consistent authentication for the BBC’s staff and their extensive wider family of freelancers, service providers and contributors who deliver its content and programming, with risk-based two factor authentication a key element. The second, BBC Identity, is to replace the organisation’s current identity and access management solution, with a strong focus on the user experience and the true business processes.

In this session, he discusses the goals, successes and challenges involved in the two projects, considering issues such as concept and culture, the importance of taking an Agile approach, and the unique challenges in delivering user-oriented I&AM projects.

With a strong track record of 15 years’ experience defining complete, cost-effective IAM solutions to meet complex business requirements, including acting as a subject matter expert and leading the business and technical design for major IAM programmes, Colin Brown continues to be an innovator in his role as Identity and Access Management Delivery Lead at the BBC.
