Identity Access Management (IAM) is a critical step in the process of securing company resources, while allowing users enough access to get the job done. Accessing data is only one component of identity and access management. Once a user has access to data, what should they be able to do with it? Should a user be able to modify or delete it? Should they be able to FTP it off to another site outside the company?
According to Steve Jensen, VP/CISO of Carlson Wagonlit Travel, there are four reasons to undertake an IAM project: regulatory compliance, enhancing security, making security operations more efficient, and making it easier for business units to interact with security.
Jensen has outlined the following 10-step program to a successful IAM project.
