IAM Strategy

Optimize Your IAM Investments with a Better IAM Strategy

When your identity and access management (IAM) program can't keep up with evolving technology and emerging threats, it may be time to develop a more mature IAM strategy.

Access and identity management is more important than ever. As the world becomes increasingly connected, the risk of cyber attacks increases as well. For many organizations, identity and access management is a primary concern, and for good reason: more than 80 percent of recent hacking-related breaches were successful in part due to stolen or weak passwords.*

Many organizations have made investments in identity and access management tools and programs. But often these initiatives are technology- or problem-centric, addressing the needs of a specific business process or group of users. Building IAM programs that protect an enterprise more broadly and are designed to grow with the organization is far more difficult.

A well-developed IAM strategy can help by migrating tactical projects to a more strategic IAM program while leveraging existing investments. A superior IAM strategy requires significant IAM expertise – a skill set that is often hard to find. Fortunately, organizations looking to create an IAM strategy can count on the cyber security expertise and experience of Optiv.
