Identity & Access Management
The importance of controlling access to information has never been greater. Organisations within both the private and public sectors are collecting and storing ever increasing volumes of sensitive data. At the same time, businesses are extending their operations outside traditional boundaries - authorised access to information at anytime, from anywhere, by employees, business partners, and customers has become a fundamental requirement across all industries.
External factors are also forcing organisations to improve the way in which they manage access to information. Legal and regulatory requirements such as the Data Protection Act and Sarbanes Oxley have raised the minimum acceptable level of access control, and penalties for non-compliance are significant. In addition, customer expectations regarding the protection of their personal data are at an all-time high.
Deloitte has acquired IM Global, a specialist identity and access management security firm, to strengthen Deloitte’s existing identity and access management capabilities with a significant team of specialists joining from IM Global to create one of the largest identity and access management teams in Europe.
The enlarged Security team at Deloitte will be able to provide the full range of identity and access management advisory, strategic, technical and vendor specialist skills including Oracle, IBM, CA, Aveksa, SailPoint and Novell.
The Identity & Access Management (IAM) team will deliver services to clients through seven key areas of IAM specialism:
- Access certification
- Access management & federation
- Entitlements management
- Role management
- Strong authentication
- User provisioning
