Identity and Access Management (IAM) is a framework for ensuring that the right individuals have access to the right resources, services, and information at the right time, and for the right reasons. The primary goal of IAM is to establish and maintain a secure and reliable digital identity for each user within an organisation.
IAM involves the management of user identities, including authentication, authorisation, and privileges. It also includes the management of user access to various systems, applications, and data resources.
IAM is important for businesses because it helps to mitigate security risks, protect sensitive information, and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. With IAM, organisations can enforce access policies, monitor user activity, and detect potential security threats.
IAM systems typically include several components, such as identity governance, identity administration, access management, and identity analytics. These components work together to manage and control user access to critical systems and data.
In summary, IAM is a critical component of any organisation's cybersecurity strategy. By establishing and maintaining secure digital identities for each user, organisations can reduce the risk of security breaches, protect sensitive data, and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements.
