Mark ScheibleORG North Carolina State University Title BIO Mark Scheible has worked in the information technology field for over 25 years and is currently the Identity and Access Manager for North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC. His current challenges are rolling out an IAM Initiative for the university while trying to organize collaborative teams of IT staff from central IT and the colleges across campus to address specific IAM projects. His previous position brought him his first exposure to the higher education community as an IT Manager with Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. It was here that Mark’s interest in Identity and Access Management was first sparked – dealing with the complexities of authentication and de-authentication in a medical environment. He also had the opportunity to explore the use of 2-factor authentication and PKI through a collaborative effort with Dartmouth College. Mark started his IT career with Digital Equipment Corporation and Compaq Computers in systems management and later as a windows system administrator.
Mark is also the co-chair of the Federated Identity Management Task Force at MCNC/NCREN. The Task Force was formed in the fall of 2007 to identify one or more solutions to allow multiple North Carolina organizations (colleges, community colleges, K-12, government organizations, etc.) to authenticate to shared resources, using their existing identity management environments.
