Program Governance

Project Planning and Oversight for Strategic Identity and Access Management Programs

Identity and access management (IAM) impacts your entire organization by improving productivity and customer loyalty, while also reducing the risks contributing to a breach and organizational threats. The integration of IAM processes, people and technology into your organization is a challenging task and skilled resources are a scaricty. How can you align organizations to move from tactical implementations to a strategic program, while allocating resources effectively?

Optiv has experience planning, building and running thousands of security programs for enterprises of all sizes. We can help you manage all aspects of your IAM program, from project management of implementations to coordination with your organization's oversight and compliance programs to shepherding the maturity of your program across the IAM pillars of identity data management, access management, identity management, access governance, privileged access management, and data security and analytics.
