The Bravura Security solution delivery team provides the foundation for a successful and rapid implementation of Bravura Security Fabric. This full-featured solution is the only platform for end-to-end data security, identity and access management (IAM), password and passwordless administration, group management, and privileged access oversight.
What Does an IAM Implementation Strategy Include?
The success of any implementation project relies on the planning and organization behind it. Your implementation strategy is the step-by-step guide for precisely how you'll align your needs and objectives with practical execution.
Start your strategy by clearly defining the goals you want to achieve with your project. Knowing where you want to end up is key to developing an accurate road map for getting there. This is also an ideal time to consider the challenges that may lie ahead so you can ground your expectations.
Collect information that will help you make realistic, data-driven decisions. This info might come from industry experts, your internal team or C-suite stakeholders. You'll want a solid understanding of elements like anticipated costs, expected time to value, project time frames and workforce needs.
Revisit the risks you started to think about during goal definition. Common factors that can impact project success include budget limits, staffing changes, and upcoming holidays or extended leaves of absence. Understand these risks with a thorough report of your strengths, weaknesses, threats and opportunities (SWOT). The SWOT analysis will help you prioritize your risks and find proactive ways to mitigate them.
Use tools like Gantt charts to identify crucial checkpoints and stay on schedule. Landmarks serve as a realistic, objective measurement of progress toward your goals. During this stage, it's also vital to distinguish which tasks depend on others so you can outline your steps in a cohesive, organized way.
Task and Responsibility Delegation
Create a list of tasks and who's responsible for them to enhance accountability and keep everyone on the same page. Cross-check this list with your schedule to set potential deadlines and clear expectations. The delegation process is inherently flexible, so you can manage your team members' strengths for a more successful project.
Determine what resources you'll need and when. This review can help you minimize the risks of resources being unavailable or improperly allocated. Accurate prioritization can also help you keep the project on time and within budget.
Considerations Exclusive to IAM
While the above steps form the foundation of any successful implementation strategy, several additional considerations are key when implementing an IAM solution. These include:
- Zero trust frameworks: An IAM strategy with a zero trust implementation means authenticating, authorizing and validating users of all types on a consistent, ongoing basis before granting access. It's an essential approach to cybersecurity in today's environment where traditional network boundaries no longer exist.
- Resource security: Strong access controls and data governance procedures are vital to protecting business assets. Your IAM solution should incorporate security principles like least-privileged access and role-based access control implementation to help safeguard your systems and data.
- Privileged information access: All access should be privileged to shield high-level business information like competitive advantage and intellectual property. By including privileged access management (PAM) implementation in your strategy, you can limit and track access to confidential and sensitive business accounts.
- Post-implementation support: No implementation strategy is complete without a plan for training and support after the initial deployment.
