Webcast: Identity and Access Governance Evolves; Critical Success Factors


identity managementIdentity Management has been on the corporate technology agenda for 15 years. ‘Giving the right people, the right access to the right things, at the right time’ (Gartner), has never been more relevant.

The number of corporate systems has exploded, the move from on premise to cloud, access via mobile computing and bring your own devices (BYOD), remote working has become the norm, user populations are larger and more diverse, opening up systems to subcontractors, suppliers, joint ventures and customers and we now need to cater not just for humans but also things and apps . . .  All this, not to mention corporate security, audit requirements, data loss prevention, protecting personal identifiable information (PII) and increasing compliance requirements.

However, recent history is also littered with IDM project failures due to unanticipated complexity and project overruns, sometimes measured in many years, and the enormity of the task that touches the entire organisation.

The challenge is not just Identity, but the management of fine grained access by role and job, and even individual, and critically, the often ill-defined business process and governance mechanism by which the right people do get access to the right processes and information at the right time, for the right reason. This is the challenge of Identity and Access Governance (IAG).

At this webcast our expert speakers Hans Van Nes and Martin Reeves, delved into the challenges facing effective Identity and Access Governance, the business processes affected, the role and limitations of technology and the critical success factors that management must consider to assure successful Identity and Access Management outcomes.

We shared insights into topics such as:

  • The challenge in defining the evolving business processes that are affected by identity and access
  • The role of compliance and the risks surrounding identity and access
  • Some real life examples and case studies
  • The tricky joiners/movers/leavers cycle and how to address this challenge across the business
  • The often overlooked ‘exception’ processes
  • Quick wins for your IAG Roadmap
  • A success framework for you to benchmark your plan and progress
