Securing Success: The Power of Tailored IAM Solutions

With data breaches and cyber threats becoming both increasingly prevalent and increasingly effective, businesses are beginning realising the critical importance of Identity and Access Management (IAM) in their cyber security strategies. Not only does IAM help to strengthen businesses’ cyber defences, but it can streamline operations. With an effective IAM framework, businesses can benefit greatly. Here at Infosec K2K, we specialise in providing bespoke IAM solutions designed to meet the unique needs of our clients.

How IAM Enhances Security and Efficiency

IAM strategies encompass a range of processes, all of which are aimed at managing, tracking and securing the digital identities associated with your network – and controlling users’ access to resources. By implementing IAM solutions, businesses can ensure that only those individuals that they’ve already authorised have access to sensitive data and systems. This way, they can keep their most secure assets safe, and minimise the risk of data breaches and insider threats.

What’s more, IAM can be used to streamline your business’ user provisioning and deprovisioning processes. This can reduce your administrative overhead costs and reduce the chance of human error. Last year, research showed that 75% of data breaches are caused by the poor management of digital identities, access, and privileges. Businesses and government organisations can both fall into this trap. Earlier this year, a government agency was hacked after a malicious actor used the credentials of a former employee’s account. By not removing the account, the agency left themselves vulnerable to breaches. With an effective IAM solution in place, organisations can enforce least privilege access policies across their network. This way they can implement stronger authentication policies and centralise identity governance, strengthening their defences and protecting their data.

The Challenges Posed By IAM

Despite the benefits of IAM, some businesses still encounter challenges when it comes to implementing and managing IAM solutions in their network. Some of the most common obstacles include complexity, scalability, interoperability, and stringent regulatory requirements surrounding data protection and privacy. Smaller organisations may struggle to navigate  IAM technology and the regulatory, risk management and compliance mandates associated with them. This can in turn lead to delays, cost overruns, and the potential for data breaches – which can have dire consequences. Research by IBM showed that the average cost of a data breach was $4.45 million (£3.5 million) last year.

That’s not all, though. Even after a business has implemented an IAM solution, it will still require ongoing monitoring, maintenance, and updates. That doesn’t mean software updates – businesses need to evaluate their solution and update best practices. This way, they’ll ensure they can stand up to emerging cyber threats and meet new regulatory requirements. At Infosec K2K we understand the challenges our clients face, and offer comprehensive support to help them overcome these obstacles.
