Converged : The Need For Cybersecurity

Jun 15, 2022 | cybersecurity, Resources

Converged IAM is the future of IAM because the digital transformation of enterprise and government continues to gain speed.

The adoption of measures to mitigate intangible risks against visible and immediate corporate requirements are limited. Significant gaps are ever-present in the assessment, management and operations surrounding risks arising from converged security.

Asset-intensive industries, are generally at risk with the proliferation of industrial IoT and legacy systems interfaced to their IT networks. Especially those within a critical infrastructure setting such as power, water or transport.

To assist organizations in risk management, must work with skilled professionals who can deliver a framework for integrated security governance.

Digital transformation

Digital transformation delivers many benefits to organizations including greater efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and the agility to respond to changing needs.

But it also delivers challenges in the form of dispersed data warehousing. Así como también el uso de servicios públicos que no controlan completamente el grupo de TI de la organización, y una proliferación de aplicaciones únicas para administrar y monitorear.

How can companies bring their digital visions to reality when their people, data and infrastructure are moving outside of their control?


Converged IAM

Organisations need a heightened focus on the protection of both their own and customer information to ensure business sustainability and to retain customer trust. Converged IAM is indeed the future of IAM. It’s only a matter of realizing this importance and educating stakeholders to ensure organizations are better equipped to handle today’s sophisticated threat landscape.

As we mentioned in our post a few months ago, Converged Identity and Access Management (CIAM) unifies disparate physical and logical access control systems to create a singular trusted identity and credential to match rights and access them across the enterprise.

CIAM is born out of growing customer demands. The gist of these demands are quite consistent: quick, reliable, and trustworthy service. Furthermore, customers want seamless, no-fuss experiences.

Security must be like a living organism that can adapt to global risks and increase or decrease security as the threat landscape changes.  The level of security, of course, can impact friction with employees, so it is important that during normal operations the security controls have zero friction and visibility for employees. This ensures usable security and increases the effectiveness of controls.
