Identity and Access Governance
Identity & Access Governance (IAG) solution gives an organisation control over who has access to data and to which data. People often fail to realise or acknowledge that logic is required to achieve the structured management of information and systems. Policies are not translated into operational processes, and no framework exists to make standardisation possible.
This access issue is what usually generates the most findings during an audit. In the short-term, employees may find the discretionary allocation of access a convenience. But as time passes, allocation of permissions becomes rampant and this will eventually lead to the business being damaged. IAG is a combination of internal control mechanisms limiting the risks from unauthorised access and providing compliance improvements.
