When to set-up an Identity Access Management system (IAM)?

The problem:

Within my company, should everyone be able to access any kind of data included in the information system? Or should I set up an identity access management system (IAM), providing various rights to various staff members according to their position and function?

5 key recommendations you should keep in mind:

  1. It’s not always easy to define who should access what. However, we must insist on the importance of sanity behavior.
  2. Basically, you will need to use an ID and Access Management system, to manage rules and rights, and set up a trusted space where the restricted documents are stored.
  3. One step further, it can be convenient to set up a trusted space where some managers can share information and documents, knowing these exchanges will remain secure.
  4. Don’t forget: company stakeholders move! Your IAM system must be easily managed and linked to other corporate systems (HR among others).
  5. ID does not mean “password”. In fact, some sophisticated ID systems are passwordless.
