Regaining Control With IGA Solutions
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Tuesday, September 10, 2019 TIME: 4:00pm CEST, 10:00am EDT, 7:00am PDT
Role management remains a pivotal challenge in many companies. Regulations (such as BAIT and VAIT in Germany) require companies not only to implement an IGA solution (Identity Governance & Administration), but also a uniform authorization concept and its regular review, including the assignment of access rights to the individual authorized persons.
Companies that are confronted with this challenge for the first time, must start with an initial consolidation. This can lead to complex projects with multi-year initiatives to define business roles and cumbersome access verification (recertification) processes that annoy business users. Many organizations are struggling with the complexity of existing role models, while their infrastructure is continuously changing towards "hybrid" and regulatory requirements are increasing.
This calls for modern approaches that focus on efficient and lean methods, meet regulatory requirements and work for business users. The current status of all systems in the entire IT landscape must be homogenized and correlated so that gaps can be identified, SoD controls can be specified and enforced, reports produced, and efficient recertification can be made possible.
In this webinar we will discuss:
- Authorization management, roles and IGA for your organization: What is necessary and what can it look like in practice?
- The challenges and benefits of access governance in real life.
- Lean, efficient and intelligent approaches for modeling and adapting existing and redesigned authorization concepts.
In the first part, Matthias Reinwarth, Director Practice IAM and Senior Analyst at KuppingerCole, will review the current state of IGA and in particular access governance.
In the second part, Nexis GmbH CEO Dr. Ludwig Fuchs will talk about tool support during role and entitlement maintenance and governance with a dedicated focus on integrating business expert know-how.

Determined cyber attackers will nearly always find a way into company systems and networks using tried and trusted techniques. It is therefore essential to assume breach and have the capability to identify, analyze, and neutralize cyber-attacks before they can do any serious damage.
