How to Plan an Effective IAM Strategy

Identity and Access Management (IAM) can be defined as the process of monitoring as to who has access to what
data. It is a cross functional activity that consists of setting up separate identities for systems and individuals and
providing the association of system and application-level accounts to these identities. Though there are numerous
executives who believe IAM to be an IT function, the process has an impact on every business unit across the
enterprise. Hence, it is crucial that business units are aware of the nature of IAM and the way means to effectively
manage it. IT teams also need to understand the method in which IAM can assist business processes and offer
sound solutions that fulfill corporate agendas without making the organization vulnerable to any unwarranted
risks.

Things To Be Considered In An IAM Strategy
There are certain crucial aspects that should be considered while planning for an identity access management
strategy. They are:

         The risks that are associated with IAM and the way they are addressed
         The enterprise’s requirements
         The way to approach IAM within an enterprise and how an effective IAM looks like
         The procedure for recognizing users and the amount of users that are present within an enterprise
         A process for authenticating users
         The access approvals that are given to the users
         To monitor if the users are accessing IT resources inappropriately
         The procedure for recording and tracking user activities

However, as an enterprise undergoes changes, the IAM processes implemented too need to be changed
accordingly. To make this task easy, eminent companies specializing in data protection solutions have introduced
advanced IAM solutions having features such as:
