Auditing Identity and Access Management

Format: On-demand

Identity access management (IAM) covers the policies, processes, and tools for ensuring users of computer systems have appropriate access to the organization’s IT resources, such as computers, the organization’s network(s), software applications, and intranet. IAM controls are necessary wherever the use of hardware or software requires differentiated permissions, or the ability to track actions taken. IAM typically requires coordination between personnel and systems in human resources, other business units, and IT. This self-study course, which is based largely on the Global Technology Audit Guide (GTAG) “Auditing Identity and Access Management,” will help internal auditors to gain a deeper understanding of IAM controls, and how to audit IAM.
