What you should know about access management

Comments Off on What you should know about access management

Many companies are subject to strict regulatory requirements.

The topic of access management is important in almost all requirements.

To ensure that these requirements are met, companies must be audited externally or by their own auditors!

Here it is helpful to present targeted Audit analyses in order to be able to fulfil a fast data delivery within the scope of an audit and thus to be able to prove compliance with the right requirements.

In order to be able to meet the goals and requirements of access management, technical support is advantageous, but the purchase of a tool alone is not sufficient. Added to this is the complexity of access management:

In addition to complexity, further problem areas arise

Our partner KMPG has to deal with a number of errors and problems during external or internal audits, for example:

  • Intransparency of the assigned or required authorizations (e.g. missing reporting options or quality of the authorization descriptions)
  • Intransparency on “legalizations” (applications / releases not comprehensible
  • Overrights (e.g. “trainee effect” or in relation to privileged accounts)
  • No periodic quality assurance (“recertification”)
  •  Lack of acceptance of responsibility
  • Failure and waiting times for IT systems
  • Dealing with www authorizations (e.g. regarding information owners, entry in CMDB)
  • Overloading of the service desk due to increasing diversity of the application landscape and the repetitive standard queries
  • Overview of external employees/service providers and their access to company data not available/incomplete
  • Authorizations not organized according to business functions, no role model available

What do?

Together with our partner KMPG, we have compiled a free white paper which shows how these regulatory requirements have been implemented and helps you to cope with the complexity of access management and compliance, security and efficiency. Here you can download it for free.

GDPR – What’s the fuss about

Get GDPR Ready – What You Need To Know

GDPR Breakfast

GDPR Breaktast Seminar London 18.10.2017

With less than 8 months to go, few CEOs and their CIOs can have failed to have heard of GDPR. However, we are still receiving calls from businesses that have yet to implement any measures to comply with the 25th May 2018 deadline.

While GDPR is about protecting personal data – our employees, our customers, and any other individual’s data that is processed or stored by our organisations – it is also about protecting your business too. Fines of up to €20 million (or 4% of annual gross turnover) provides a compelling reason to act now and ensure your business is compliant.

GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation

GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation

There is a tonne of information on the internet and on various websites about how the EU General Data Protection Regulation GDPR will affect almost all organisations, from 25th May 2018, who gather information from anyone residing in the EU, irrespective of the size of the organisation.

There are of course two ways of looking at GDPR – firstly from the consumers side and secondly from the company holding the consumers data.
