Identity and Access Management (IDAM)

What is Identity and Access Management (IDAM)

Traditional access controls on business systems and data are based on permitting access only from specified trust locations. This is then sometimes layered with basic username and password authentication to provide additional security. This can all fall apart though if an internal machine is compromised or if credentials are exposed. Additionally, with users working from dynamic locations, including from home, we can no longer explicitly trust a device.

Identity and Access Management (IDAM) allows you to move to a system where we make the user prove they are trusted through robust authentication using multiple authentication methods. This is done as seamlessly as possible to the end-user, only requesting manual intervention where necessary. Using a dedicated IDAM tool allows you to expand beyond username and passwords and instead utilise methods such as FIDO2 keys, mobile phone apps and biometrics.

Central Response Team Manager

Kieron has been with SEP2 since 2019 and works in our support team.

For Kieron, there is no typical day at SEP2, for one day he can be working through open tickets, another day you could be working on a priority case for the duration of the day, and another day you could be working on an ongoing project, but what Kieron enjoys is that the mix of challenges keeps the role fresh and interesting.

Kieron likes that within the support team everybody works well together, and shares knowledge between every level and are constantly being encouraged to learn.

In his spare time, Kieron’s current favourite hobby is working on his allotment, which gives him a nice change of scenery and a break from technology.
