Identity Access Management (IAM) – also sometimes referred to as Identity Management (IDM) – is the discipline that “enables authorised individuals to access resources for legitimate reasons”. It covers issues such as how users gain an identity, the protection of that identity and the technologies supporting that protection (e.g., network protocols, digital certificates, passwords, etc.). Our goal is to design and implement sustainable, consistent and effective process and governance models to support organisations’ Identity requirements.
We help organisations to achieve
- Lowered Risk (and awareness of Risk position)
- Enhanced system security
- Increased compliance through automation and controls standardisation
- Organisational efficiency gains, through centralisation of processes and automation
- Improved and more efficient processes (cost save, cost avoidance)
- Increased user satisfaction (faster, easier, self-service, mobility)
- Reduced licensing costs (Microsoft, Adobe, Oracle, SAP etc)
- Enhanced transparency
Enabling the right individuals to access the right resources at the right times for the right reasons.
An organisation can spend millions and invest in the latest and greatest software, hardware and architecture but without good processes, and without business alignment that investment will likely fail and lead to dissatisfaction.
Gartner forecasts that, through 2021, organisations without a formal program will spend 40% more on identity and access management (IAM) capabilities while achieving less than organisations with such programs.
We see 10 core Building Blocks which underpin an organisation’s Risk Management. When they operate effectively they act as enablers for enhanced compliance, improved speed and agility, providing greater user empowerment, and promoting both awareness and ownership of Risk.
