Mark Twain was said to have proclaimed that the secret to getting ahead is getting started. Sometimes, though, getting started is the hardest part. Hurdles inherent in any project, whether actual or perceived, can often be enough to stop people from even starting, especially something as complicated as an Identity and Access Management (IAM) program. Budget issues, concerns over which technology to select, securing buy-in from multiple departments, and the sheer complexity involved with undertaking IAM can be the nails in the coffin.
IAM is one of the hardest journey’s an organization can undertake – it’s invasive and expensive so doing it wrong (or worse, having to do it over) isn’t an option. This isn’t a project that allows for a lot of do-overs. Knowing that, you might be asking “Where do I start?”
It’s a good question and one we are uniquely poised to answer. As leaders in IAM Consulting and Professional Services, we have drawn on our years of collective experience and created the IAM Maturity Model. This model breaks down IAM into five easily digestible steps, each of which are designed to prioritize your efforts. The foundation of standards, clean data, and good processes are essential components and without them firmly in place most IAM Programs are doomed. However, before you despair, be aware that companies that are able to master the basics can successfully navigate – and achieve – full IAM maturity and protect against evolving threats.
