Access Governance, also called Identity and Access Governance (IAG) is a core discipline in any GRC (Governance, Risk Management, Compliance) initiative on one hand and also in any IAM (Identity and Access Management) initiative. Access Governance is about managing and governing access to systems and information, both on-premise and in the cloud. It is thus about reducing Access Risks. Specific Access Risk Management is one of the disciplines within Access Governance. Another one is Access Intelligence, which allows to analyze current access rights and identify access risks. Other elements are Access Request Management, centralized Access Warehouses, the support for standardized, efficient Access Attestation/Recertification, and Enterprise Role Management. The latter supports the common approaches of Role Based Access Controls but also delivers important role information as a core attribute in more advanced authorization concepts of ABAC (Attribute Based Access Control).

Access Governance & Intelligence at Deutsche Bank AG
Carolin Pfeil, Deutsche Bank AG

Following the worldwide financial crisis all Financial Institutions are facing increasing regulatory requirements globally. A major focus is put on the evidence for having implemented a consistent approach to the “Segregation of Duties” (SoD) principle.

It also typically lacks support for managing business and security rules within Dynamic Authorization Management, for...
