IDENTITY ACCESS MANAGEMENT

Organisations are flocking to cloud services and mobile devices to cut costs and boost productivity either intentionally and/or via the initiative of staff members.

 

A typical but often overlooked example of this migration is the use of social media for customer interaction and increased brand awareness. Left unmanaged, these social identities are ripe for breach and abuse, and thereby opening up an organisation to legal, regulatory, operational and reputational risks that may lead to the loss of customers.

 

As organisations increase in size, different business units become responsible for managing identities. The processes for managing identity tend to fall into the following categories:

 

  • outdated or non-existent

  • manual, cumbersome and assisted by spreadsheets

  • inconsistent between business units

 

In addition, for good governance, identity management should provide answers to the following questions:

 

  • Who should have access to what?

  • Who has access to what?

  • How is that access being used?

 

In a nutshell - complete visibility and what kind of risk that represents. It should link people, applications, data and devices to create an identity-enabled organisation.

THE ISSUE

THE SOLUTION

A strong IAM programme that proactively monitors user behaviour for potentially malicious activity and periodically realigns access privileges with shifting job roles. By effectively implementing a centralise Identity Access Management solution, organisations can have the best of both worlds: an empowered, productive workforce and a robust data security strategy.
