How identity and access management can prevent cyberattacks
Identity and access management (IAM) is a growing concern for managers of many small, medium and large-sized businesses—and for good reason. Organizations are more and more reliant on digital resources and related data. Understandably, they want to make sure only authorized users gain access to such content. That said, IAM now stands as a major component of business cybersecurity strategies.
The idea is pretty straightforward: to make sure the people who access the systems are who they say they are, and to grant them access to only the resources they need to perform their work.
Are your access systems faulty or unaligned? You need to update them and correct any shortcomings to ensure optimal security.
Setting up an IAM program is a two-step process:
1. Define the rules to apply to manage digital identities.
2. Implement the necessary technologies to perform and enforce the rules.
To achieve a program that is both effective and consistent, all IAM technologies must be aligned, thus ensuring the security of the business without hindering productivity.
Cybersecurity has become centrefold for corporate success, and its importance will only grow over time.
