Identity lifecycle management
Your organization has ranked adequate on the identity life cycle management scale.
Through the deployment of a fully-automated tool for user management, you have created a clear workflow for provisioning and deprovisioning your user accounts throughout their life cycle. This has helped you achieve improved identity governance and also reduced the possible risks associated with account misuse.
Our recommendation for you is to perform a diligent evaluation of the third-party vendors deployed by your organization. With all your user identities being managed by an external vendor, you must conduct periodic security audits. This will ensure data security and protection of privileged information. In the long run, you should aim to delegate all your identity governance services through a single vendor.
Your organization has ranked functional on the identity life cycle management scale.
With a hybrid of manual process and partially automated tools managing your account services, you are prone to cyber risks like account misuse and privilege abuse. Although your current vendor has helped you take the first step towards identity governance, you still have a long way to achieve complete life cycle management.
Our recommendation for you is to carefully evaluate your current vendor to identify any missing capabilities. Rigid processes and manual interventions are major red flags. An ideal tool should work across applications and platforms with a fully automated workflow. It must be dynamically scalable and support changing business requirements.
Your organization has ranked critical on the identity life cycle management scale.
You are adequately prone to cyber risks and account takeovers. There is an immediate, urgent need for a complete revamp of your account management processes. Due to the human element in manual processes, your organization is at constant risk of account misuse and other cyberthreats.
Our recommendation for you is to kick-start your automation journey immediately. Start evaluating the current vendors in the IAM space and match their capabilities with your organizational requirements to find your best fit. Although fully automated account management is a goal for the future, it's time to take the first step towards cybersecurity now.
Your organization has ranked adequate on the access management scale.
With unified, passwordless authentication enabled across systems, you have reduced the possibility of security liabilities by eliminating unauthorized access. The centralized access management system doubled with implementation of strict access control policies has put you on the path towards achieving a Zero Trust environment.
Our recommendation for you is to periodically upgrade your access control policies to ensure that it incorporates the evolving platforms and resources. Remember that features like passwordless authentication can only ensure secure access at the first point of contact with the network. You must look into implementing cybersecurity strategies like continuous authentication based on behavioral biometrics to ensure secure access on an ongoing basis.
Your organization has ranked functional on the access management scale.
With your authentication strategy comprised of only MFA and SSO, your corporate network and resources are at risk of a security breach. Such cybersecurity measures are becoming outdated and can result in unauthorized access to your systems.
Our recommendation for you is to deploy an organization-wide passwordless authentication system. The elimination of passwords reduces the chances of human error and thereby can help you achieve an adequate level of security. Additionally, you must focus on creating fine-grained access control policies for centralized management.
Your organization has ranked critical on the access management scale.
You are currently vulnerable to the risk of data breaches via unauthorized access. This can be either because of not-so-strict access control policies, shared admin privileges, or the lack of MFA and SSO practices. Your security posture must be updated immediately to improve your defenses against cyberattacks.
Our recommendation for you is to create and deploy a strict access control policy at once. Passwords are no longer a secure measure to fortify resources—you need additional authentication factors to improve your risk posture. In the long run, your IAM strategy must also include tighter security controls defined by passwordless authentication, contextual MFA, and Zero Trust.
Your organization has ranked adequate on the security management scale.
With a SIEM solution deployed, you have achieved seamless tracking of critical security events like failed logons, data exfiltration, and data breaches. Through this, your organization can remain guarded against potential cyberattacks.
Our recommendation for you is to ensure that your SIEM approach is UEBA-enabled. With insider threats being one of the leading causes of data breaches, real-time monitoring of your own users and devices is how you can make your organization cybersecure. Furthermore, you must ensure periodic vulnerability assessments to assess your organization's preparedness in case of a cyberattack.
Your organization has ranked functional on the security management scale.
This is an indication that you lack complete visibility into your IT environment and are prone to security threats. A reactive security strategy like yours can result in being non-compliant with the regulatory mandates, since major data privacy regulations like the GDPR, CCPA, CPRA, PCI DSS, etc. have mandated that businesses must maintain documentation of data collection, data processing, and data distribution. They also expect businesses to deploy adequate safety measures to protect sensitive data.
Our recommendation for you is to implement a fully automated SIEM solution. This will help you deploy a proactive security strategy by enabling your IT admins to detect critical security incidents that can go undetected otherwise. Additionally, a strict backup and recovery system in place can help you be prepared for unexpected business disruptions and ensure business continuity at all times.
Your organization has ranked critical on the security management scale.
You are currently vulnerable to cyberthreats like insider attacks, data breaches, and data exfiltration. Lack of cloud deployment, non-compliance with privacy regulations, and no automated means to analyze and report critical security events are a few of the gaps in your security strategy that need to be fixed first.
Our recommendation for you is to start by conducting a risk check, which will expose all the security gaps in your IT environment. Analyze and prioritize the critical gaps and deploy relevant security controls like log management, threat detection, and user activity monitoring. Additionally, perform security and vulnerability checks at regular intervals to keep your security strategy updated with the evolving threat landscape.
Privileged access management
Your organization has ranked adequate on the privileged access management scale.
With a role-based access system in place, the sensitive data and critical resources of your organization are well-protected and only the privileged users can gain access to them. By monitoring privileged user access to protect your critical business data and systems, you are on the right path to raising your defenses against cyberattacks.
Our recommendation for you is to deploy a robust PAM solution. Role-based access and limited privileged users are a good foundation. To ensure complete security monitoring of your privileged user account and its activities, you need to automate user life cycle management, restrict credential sharing, provide condition-based access, and get real-time alerts about any suspicious activities. In the long run, you must deploy a Zero Trust environment for complete protection.
Your organization has ranked functional on the privileged access management scale.
Restriction of access rights and periodic review of privileged access are two must-dos to keep elevated access in check. As much as it's important to reduce privileged access to the absolute minimum number of people, it's equally important to review this periodically to ensure no one has access to more than what they need.
Our recommendation for you is to ensure implementation of both of these activities as a first step. Next, you must look into deploying a robust PAM solution to ensure complete visibility into privileged users and accounts. Additionally, you need an organization-wide privilege management policy to gain uniformed access control and improved security.
Your organization has ranked critical on the privileged access management scale.
This is a red flag to your business security, because you have overlooked the most critical risk element in IAM—privileged access. If a regular user account is compromised, the cybercriminal will only be able to access that specific user's information. But when a privileged user's account is compromised, they could gain access to other users in the organization, resulting in much greater damage to the business.
Our recommendation for you is to create and deploy a role-based access control policy immediately. It is also important to regularly review privileged access to ensure access to critical data and resources is granted only to those who have an absolute need for it. Additionally, deploying a dedicated PAM solution can help you monitor and regulate access on a granular level beyond mere authentication requests. This helps prevent vulnerabilities arising from the growing number of remote access points.
