Automating user access reviews: How to optimize and mature your identity governance program


The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about new identity and user access management challenges as organizations have been forced to implement remote work models, restructure teams, and layoff staff. And as cloud-use and mobile apps become more prevalent, internal audit and IT compliance teams need to provide even more assurance over data validity, integrity, and completeness of testing. But performing manual oversight of identity governance is not a sustainable way to get the assurance you need.

Watch this 60-minute webinar and discover how to move up the user access maturity scale and make user access testing easier with automation. You’ll also learn:

  • How to identify the current maturity of your user access review processes.
  • How to centralize and coordinate user access reviews across the business to reinforce the completeness and validity of testing.
  • How to automatically connect to systems like Active Directory, SAP ERP, and Salesforce to maximize the efficiency of user access control testing.
  • Practical steps you can take to move from Initial through to Optimized user access review maturity.
