Benefits of identity management to the public sector

Government agencies and other public institutions are in a fix: They must ensure maximum protection of the personal data processed in their systems. However, accessing this data is an essential part of their daily work. This is why information security in the public sphere depends on implementing a system for task-related access rights assignment. In other words, users should only have the access rights they actually need to perform their duties.

Centralized management of access to data pertaining to citizens, companies and public agencies

Increased security thanks to improved protection of sensitive data: Protect data from unauthorized internal and external access.

  • Reduced access risk, increased data security.
  • Access rights are automatically updated in response to governmental employee changes (e.g. hirings, terminations or reassignments).
  • In addition to meeting expectations, such a digital service speeds up and improves the service rendered to citizens, resulting in higher satisfaction.
  • Governance workflows can be used to create digital processes and accelerate all processes relating to access rights, thus making static administrative procedures dynamic.
  • Detailed audit logs allow you to answer questions like “who can access which data and applications” or “who authorized this access” at any time

Restrict Authorization to Authorized Users

Each employee can only access the data and agency software applications required to perform the given task at hand.

  • Automatic allocation and revoking of access rights for the respective user profile greatly streamlines the administration of all corresponding rights in your system landscape.
  • Significantly faster processing of access rights requests and approval procedures.
  • Departments, including specialist departments, autonomously assign and recertify access rights at regular intervals, i.e., they can affirm or revoke permissions or delegate this task.
  • Intra-agency cooperation benefits from clearly defined internal access rights in terms of easier and faster communication.
  • Authorization management functions empower you to implement tailor-made IT security policies, reduce risk relating to fraud and misuse of data, as well as set up compliant workflows.

More transparent assignment of access rights

Consistently implement the ‘need-to-know’ principle and gain a precise overview of who can access which files, drives and applications.

  • Digital processes make it possible to offer public services in a secure, transparent and efficient way.
  • IT compliance regulations are observed thanks to efficient and legally compliant documentation of IT access rights.
  • Any changes to access rights can be monitored, documented and logged in an audit-compliant manner.
  • Authorization management allows public agencies and contractors to easily comply with BSI standards (100-1, 100-2, 100-3) and ISO 27001 & ISO 27002 certification criteria.
