Identity & Access Management
Identity and Access Management (IAM) can be defined as a framework of policies, processes, and technologies that organize and monitor digital identities, user accounts, and access rights. IAM ensures that people and entities have the appropriate access to your company’s resources like databases and networks. Moreover, it regulates the tension between protecting data and using data.
Best practice approaches have gradually developed that characterize a functioning IAM system. These approaches include:
- Effective authentication procedures such as password management, multifactor authentication (MFA), single sign on (SSO), and privileged access management (PAM).
- Efficient authorization procedures such as role-based access management (RBAC).
The use of modern IAM systems is essential, as they ensure compliance with corporate policies and government regulations. However, these systems require that in addition to the core processes in IAM (joiner, mover, leaver), the support processes are considered end-to-end. For this reason, IAM is largely a process issue and as such, its integration into corporate processes is a challenge for many companies, especially if external service providers are to be integrated.
Depending on your industry, international standards (ISO 27001, risk management) and requirements of regulating authorities and institutions (European banking supervision, national financial supervision, European Union directives) must be considered when implementing an IAM.
