Identity & Access Management Best Practices
Identity and Access Management (IAM) isn’t something you do once and then forget about.
With risks of a cybersecurity breach growing daily, it’s critical to control who has access to sensitive data.
More companies are outsourcing to specialists or using external experts posing the question of what data should each be able to access. Other companies allow most employees to access sensitive data which can run afoul of regulatory requirements.
Companies need to establish or update their policies and procedures for Identity and Access Management (IAM).
This paper presents best practices in the form of a high-level roadmap guiding you from highlighting consensus building across the organization, project planning, to getting a solution implemented, allowing you to maintain your Identity & Access Management Program and align it with regulatory compliance and audit needs.
