Identity and Access Management is a complex discipline
Identity and Access Management is a vital security discipline in today’s digital world, especially given how dependent companies now are on technology. However, companies can sometimes struggle to embrace the many opportunities opened up by new technologies without exposing themselves to unnecessary risks. In order to achieve the correct balance, they need to ensure that the right people have simple, secure and controlled access to necessary systems and resources.
Cyber security threats nowadays are many and varied, meaning there are increasing demands on companies to have more control across their facilities and complex system landscapes. This needs to include control over who has access to which data and resources, and why. If a company does not have an accurate overview of its user and access rights, they may not be complying with the relevant rules and regulations and may also risk leaving big gaps in their security.
Globeteam is a consultancy firm that spans the entire range of Identity and Access Management services and has a lot of experience managing IAM projects in both the public and the private sector.
Globeteam has a large Identity and Access Management team, consisting of the country’s leading experts in the area. We organise our services with a specific focus on the individual task that needs to be solved, and we always provide the best qualified resources, depending on where the client is on their journey.
One of our strengths at Globeteam is that our consultancy services within Identity and Access Management cover both physical and logical access control, and we see the benefits of co-thinking and integrating requirements, management, and technology support. We assume a holistic approach where we address the users, processes, and technology to achieve the greatest possible effect. In the same way, our advice, design and implementation services are always based on clear, functional, and security-related requirements and needs.
Strategy, identity and security architecture
At the strategic level, Globeteam helps its clients create management support and then, in turn, anchorage. We can work with you from the idea stage to product decisions; from specification requirements and strategic roadmaps; along to risk assessment and compliance requirements, all of which provide the foundation for solution design, choice, and implementation. At Globeteam, we are particularly aware of the importance of organisational anchorage as a prerequisite for long-term sustainability of the solution.
In addition to the strategic level, Globeteam also helps its clients establish a collective identity and security architecture that is based on and designed in line with current best practices, frameworks, security and compliance standards. These include “Zero Trust”, “ISO-27000”, “NIST”, “GDPR”, “NIS2” and many others.
The more regulated an industry is the more requirements there are to comply with, follow best practice on and also be able to report about. Therefore, Identity and Access Management is not just a technical discipline, but also very much a compliance exercise. An organisation will need a procedure to describe the lifecycle for identities, accesses, approvals, and recertification. There must be controls for logging and possibly monitoring or following up on identities or accesses that need to be managed, as well as an action pattern that must be followed in various scenarios.
Of course, being compliant has many benefits for internal and external audits and authority visits, but it also provides a positive daily effect and added value which in itself demonstrates why it’s worth being in control. Maintaining a level of control means a good situation remains that way. What’s more, keeping things running well means the organisation does not periodically have to engage in expensive projects to “clean up” another messy situation where all parties have lost track and control.
