Information security is a key element in the agenda of companies in different industries. With the telecommuting expansion, the integration between the areas of IT and HR is increasingly mandatory to ensure data security and effective access management for corporate systems and resources even remotely.
On the one hand, integrated technologies and the cloud allow you to access resources from anywhere or any device. On the other hand, companies has become more susceptible to data leakage, credential and identity theft.
This is where Access Management comes in among a series of required measures. Access Management is a concept based on operations guided by integrated platforms, standards and protocols to regulate the organization’s access and identity management.

In practice, Access Management systems allow IT and HR teams to be efficient in providing and revoking access to networks, devices, platforms and databases. And, by assisting in the development of increasingly robust security policies, they help to mitigate legal risks, reduce operating costs and improve the satisfaction of end users who depend on access to perform their functions.

Strategic decisions to overcome challenges
Despite advantages, there are still barriers to implement management systems in Brazilian companies. However, they can be overcome based on strategic decisions by business leaders when starting the digital transformation process. One decision is replacing the culture of support calls and procedural operations via e-mail at all levels, concentrating them on systems to guarantee synergy among standardization, agility and integration in the access provision.
There are also technological silos that introduce obstacles in the company’s information flow: in most cases, this occurs due to incompatible systems and applications or lack of not communication among them, impacting on the effectiveness of the managers’ decision-making. In such cases, solutions to break these blocks are required, such as RPA (Robotic Process Automation) so that the data reach their recipients in an increasingly integrated manner.
Finally, the support from the senior management is required for an integrated cultural transformation. With the support and engagement of several areas in the company, including the CIO or Security Officer (CISO), a successful initiative will be much likely, and the final result will be a company with a structured access management system and a consistent evolution roadmap, taking the company’s maturity to international benchmark levels.
