Why Identity Access Management!

Why Identity Access Management!

I suppose none of us like hearing about these issues. “Sorry, I forgot to withdraw my manager’s authorization” or “Clicking the wrong button cost us a lot!”

Nearly every successful security breach involves a failure of privileged access management/IAM. To ensure the integrity of user and device identities, identity and access management (IAM) must be implemented in a successful protocol.

Visibility has become a significant issue post Covid19 which has increased the requirement for remote work, BYOI, and protection around digital transformation initiatives. It becomes increasingly difficult to keep track of who has access to what resources and at what privilege levels as more users join a network, more devices become active, and new tools are added to support various workflows. It is possible to increase visibility while also improving the user experience by centralizing identity management and sign-on procedures. Every company requires an IAM solution that is tailored to the unique requirements of its industry in general and its onsite systems in particular.

CIO Top 7 IAM Priorities

1- Established a centralized IAM platform to automate access requests and reviews

2- Provide integrated access management processes for joiners, leavers & movers as 55% of companies are at risk due to failing to deactivate the authorization of high-level user accounts

3- Comply with IAM regulations like SAMA and other authorities

4- Integrate all accesses and provide a hassle-free experience for users to log in

5- Achieve “secure anytime, anywhere” access from any device with data protection

6- Conduct role-based access control and segregation of duties pilots

7- Manage the complexity and specific risks associated with cloud migration and cloud-based IAM solutions.

Do you know about document-centric identity proofing, more informally known as the “ID + selfie” process?
