The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated Identity and Access Management specific requirements:

STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with…

  • The latest quick edition of the Identity and Access Management Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals…

STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 892 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Identity and Access Management improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 892 standard requirements:

  1. New objects as the plethora of different device types, devices, gateways and IoT platforms need to be maintained because they are decentralized trust servers of the organizations using them. Management and governance enables organizations to meet both compliance and business requirements. Will your IAM system handle the increased number of relationships between users, devices, services and policies?

  2. Do we put an IAM architect in the IoT center of excellence? Hastily deployed pockets of identity infrastructure need to be maintained for the full lifetime of the devices. You do not want to set a presence of systems with low assurance levels that an organization later must handle. Do you need end-to-end authentication and authorization?

  3. Having a process in place to manage identities and access to systems and applications sounds like an ideal situation. However, how can organizations ensure that people are not circumventing the process and adding their own accounts or the accounts of others without proper authorization or adherence to defined processes?

  4. Does Project Management include applications and information with regulatory compliance significance (or other contractual conditions that must be formally complied with) in a new or unique manner for which no approved security requirements, templates or design models exist?

  5. Are we able to answer the question: given the answer to the authentication question, and any other information available about the entity, what functions and data items should be made available for this entitys use?

  6. Has the organization established an Identity and Access Management program that is consistent with requirements, policy, and applicable guidelines and which identifies users and network devices?

  7. For audit tracking, state the level of the granularity needed; do you just need to know that someone logged in and out, or do you need to know what screens or records or fields were accessed?

  8. What are our best practices for minimizing Identity and Access Management project risk, while demonstrating incremental value and quick wins throughout the Identity and Access Management project lifecycle?

  9. Does our vendor have an efficient, working partner network that can quickly deliver specialized services around the deployment and operation of the iga products?

  10. Do we keep track of who the leading providers of identity management products and services are, and what are their key offerings, differentiators and strategies?

Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:

  • The workbook is the latest in-depth complete edition of the Identity and Access Management book in PDF containing 892 requirements, which criteria correspond to the criteria in…

  • 62 step-by-step Identity and Access Management Project Management Form Templates covering over 6000 Identity and Access Management project requirements and success criteria:

Examples; 10 of the check box criteria:

  1. Scope Management Plan: Is there a requirements change management processes in place?
  2. Procurement Management Plan: What were things that you did very well and want to do the same again on the next Identity and Access Management project?
  3. Cost Management Plan: Is Identity and Access Management project status reviewed with the steering and executive teams at appropriate intervals?
  4. Change Management Plan: Is there a support model for this application and are the details available for distribution?
  5. Quality Audit: How does the organization know that its range of activities are being reviewed as rigorously and constructively as they could be?
  6. Procurement Management Plan: Based on your Identity and Access Management project communication management plan, what worked well?
  7. Probability and Impact Matrix: How are risks and risk management perceived in the Identity and Access Management project?
  8. Team Member Performance Assessment: What are the standards or expectations for success?
  9. Procurement Audit: Is the appropriate procurement approach being chosen (considering for example the possibility of contracting out work or procuring low value items through a specific low cost procuring system)?
  10. Issue Log: Are stakeholder roles recognized by the organization?
