We are pleased to announce that the results of the 2022 IDPro Skills, Programs & Diversity Survey are now available to our members.
This is the fifth annual installment of the digital identity industry survey conducted by IDPro and made possible thanks to our members and participants. IDPro’s annual surveys are a deep dive into the identity and access management industry.
We initially created the survey to assess the goals, interests, and skills among identity professionals. Since that time, we’ve expanded the Skills, Programs & Diversity Survey to examine industry members and their employer’s priorities as well as inclusion and diversity within the IAM industry.
The survey took place during numerous global geopolitical issues: the Ukraine conflict, the continued global impact of COVID-19, and economic challenges. These situations played a role in the responses – with some surprising, and not-so-surprising, results.
Notable trends found in this year’s results include:
- COVID-19 continues to impact our society and—by extension—the challenges facing digital identity professionals.
- Applied identity is a newly emerging field as individuals within organizations—who do not today consider themselves identity practitioners—apply identity services to address particular business needs.
- Traditionally on-premise directory services have now shifted to remote due to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns.
- Personal identity technologies are becoming more important for enterprises, however, they have yet to respond to this ongoing trend.
Members are encouraged to read the full report, available for download in the IDPro Slack channel.
IDPro Founders Ian Glazer and Andi Hindle will be hosting an exclusive live Q&A— IDPro members, continue the discussion on the survey trends. Stay tuned for the registration announcement on Slack.
