At its essence, Identity & Access Management (IAM) is a security discipline that enables the right people to access the right resources at the right time for the right reasons, in line with business needs.
While that may sound deceptively simple, there are a lot of moving parts involved. You must have a way to identify your users and ensure that they are who they claim to be. You also have to make sure that each individual user has just the right level of access – not too much and not too little. And you need to ensure that each user’s level of access can be maintained, updated, and audited at any point during their life cycle with your organization.
