Access Governance

Access Governance

Organizations have an ongoing-need to support the companies to reach their strategic objetives. They must enable every employee or involved partner or contractor to perform better. At the same time organizations must manage the involved security risk when using the data and applications . Companies there

fore need to perform role and user management based on audit-compliant processes in order to meet compliance requirements. They require the highest possible level of transparency in order to implement and enforce consistent identity access governance processes.

Nord/LB wins Best Access Governance Award based on Beta Systems IAM Suite

Beta Systems solutions got Access Governance Award

Beta Systems solutions got Access Governance Award

The European Identity & Cloud Awards 2015 were presented last night by KuppingerCole at the 9th European Identity & Cloud Conference (EIC). In the category Best Access Governance / Intelligence Project, the award was granted to Nord/LB for implementing an IAM project based on Beta Systems’ IAM suite. The project is focusing on realizing a modern, workflow-structured and role-based IAM system that mitigates existing risks and improves governance capabilities. An important element within its design and deployment was a clear segregation between management of identities and access and the technical operation. The solution was implemented by Beta Systems long-time IAM solution partner BLUECARAT.

How to identify and measure IT access risks

IT Risk Identification with Access Intelligence – Why you can’t do without it

Before access risks can be avoided, reduced or managed, they must first be identified. While this may seem trivial, it is a complex task in terms of permission management. Detecting and assessing risks among the enormous amounts of data that continuously accrue in the access management environment is a lot like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack. With a growing number of users, roles and IT systems – all of which must be granted permissions – the sheer number of risk opportunities rises exponentially.

A company with 5,000 employees and only 50 IT systems with ten permission groups each, for example, has over 2.5 million permission-granting possibilities, each of which may represent a high or low risk for the company. In light of this, the task of identifying all the existing risks from these permissions, assessing their effects and defining appropriate measures seems hopeless.
