Organisations are adopting more and varied ways of interacting with employees, customers and partners via the Web, social media and mobile device technologies. As a result, many have experienced a significant spike in access points and digital user identities. Today, they find themselves struggling to gain greater control over identity and access management. To remain competitive, a business must be able to extend its operations outside traditional boundaries. Authorised access to information at any time, from anywhere, by employees, business partners and customers has become a key business need.
Control of information has never been more critical to an organisation, its employees, vendors, and business partners, yet never has it been more difficult. Unauthorised system access leading to compromised data and information causes anxiety on the part of executive officers and security consultants, of almost every organisation across the globe.
To enhance organisational results, we take a business-focused, end-to-end approach that safeguards and streamlines identity management in support of cost savings, productivity, and risk reduction goals.
The Identity & Access Management framework developed and used by Deloitte member firms combines business process, security and controls, enterprise resource planning (ERP), project management and technology skills with in-depth vendor software knowledge to address the following areas:
Deloitte’s ground breaking “Access Maturity Model” approach to enterprise access controls moves access control management from information systems to business units, particularly human resources. Because these controls can be more readily aligned with enterprise-wide strategies and objectives, there is reduced risk, streamlined, automated processes and easier, more effective compliance and audit reporting. Companies are positioned to support cloud computing initiatives, the intersection of physical and logical security and more fully integrate the role management in ERP systems.
