The Role of Identity Management in GDPR

By | IDaaS | No Comments

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming to a head in May 2018 is when the regulation really takes hold, and organisations are fast in the act on putting plans, processes and personnel in place. Its effect will be felt worldwide, any company holding the personal data of EU individuals will have to ensure they’re compliant. At this point of time, most large organisations have established a task force or at least assigned a dedicated person to drive the GDPR compliancy.

The GDPR aims primarily to give control back to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU. In order to be able to demonstrate compliance with the GDPR, the data controllers are implementing measures which meet the principles of data protection by design and data protection by default.

Organisations with a strong IAM strategy in place are more likely to be able to tell the right people at the right time if their data has been compromised.

From a business point of view IAM strategy is important to manage customer identities, not only to comply with the GDPR, but also so help improve the business’s view of its customer and its relationship with them.  IT organizations are already in the progress of updating their identity management solutions to implement the fine-grained access to personal data in line with the GDPR. Are you ready?

Identity Governance, IBM & SAP

After years of being a legend, IBM is finally beginning to move with Access Governance features. Through the acquisition of Cross Ideas, IBM has brought its Identity Management Technology (ISIM) in line with some of the best.


But most still don’t know that IBM’s Access Governance has something special for SAP customers.

SoD (Segregation of Duties) was a Cross Ideas (company IBM acquired) strength for SAP customers.  Now IBM has refined this original Cross Ideas feature to serve the needs of SAP customers, providing IBM SAP customers with Access Governance and saving them thousands of dollars that they had to spend on complex technologies such as SAP GRC.

ILANTUS is the only partner of IBM that worked with Cross Ideas even before the acquisition.

As a trusted IBM partner and with an “SAP Innovation Lab,” ILANTUS understands SAP and  works with IBM technology that is easy to implement and support.
