Identity and Access Management Strategy

Creating a Mature Identity and Access Management Strategy
 

An effective identity and access management strategy is critical to ensuring the success of identity and access management (IAM) programs.

Today's organizations must rely on IAM more than ever. Increasingly complex technology and a connected world open the door to more frequent and more devastating cyber attacks. In these instances, ineffective access and identity management is often the cause.

Recognizing the need for better IAM programs, many companies have invested in IAM technology at a tactical level to address specific problems or manage certain groups of users. Far fewer companies have been able to develop an identity and access management strategy with the maturity to integrate identity and access management tools throughout the organization for greater security and efficiency.

To create an effective identity and access management strategy, organizations need clear insight into threats, business requirements, available solutions and successful governance processes. This kind of comprehensive approach to IAM requires extensive experience, deep expertise and proven technologies – the very resources provided by Optiv.
