Identity and Access Management (IdAM/IAM)
Privileged Access Management (PAM)

The Assurance that Users are who they say they are, and an ability to control what they can do

What is IdAM/IAM?

It comprises Process, Policy and Technology. The Identity part of IdAM ensures that each person or device can be uniquely identified with high levels of Assurance. The Assurance is to verify they are who they claim to be, and are not imposters. Access Management ensures the right people, have the right access, at the right time, in order for an activity to be performed.

What is PAM?

PAM is one part of Identity and Access Management, and a specialism in its own right. Privilege means having a level of access that is not standard. Higher risk access should have enhanced security controls such as a separate account, different password policies as compared to Standard Access, improved audit trail, safeguards to resist against attack.

  • A key tool in managing risks presented by administrative access

Use Cases

Swiss Cheese Security

There is a concept in risk analysis known as the Swiss cheese model, based on those such as Emmental which is famous for its holes. When considering each layer of defence around a system there may be flaws, or holes, in each layer, but if the holes do not all line up then there is no direct path through the layers and the whole defence has no hole.
