What is GDPR?
Optimal IdM only utilizes state-of-the-art datacenters, operated by internationally recognized providers. The datacenters we utilize are configured with the highest possible security and are audited annually, keeping us GDPR compliant. The amount of encrypted information passed during this authentication exchange is a function of the relying provider request. Optimal IdM does not add any vulnerabilities, or outside processing.
An identity access management (IAM) solution can reduce headaches by centralizing all the identities and personal information you manage to fewer locations. Personal information does not need to be stored in numerous applications and databases across your company. Reducing your identity stores will make user management easier and more efficient while lowering inappropriate disclosure risks. With our software acting as a middleman, access to a data store is restricted only to our software. And for consumer identities, you no longer need to maintain your own repository of personal identity information.
Having an IAM solution in place can simplify your data mapping process by providing a roadmap for your data flows. An IAM serves as a centralized control point for authentication and access to systems throughout your company. The sources of identity data used in your company are specified in the IAM software. Likewise, all parties relying on that identity data are also specified in the IAM software. Therefore, an IAM solution can be your internal source to understand where data goes. If a web app requests access to your customer database, you now know you must pursue that path to see is if the data is stored elsewhere. By centralizing identity management to one application, it eliminates pathways that allow access to other locations.
When IAM is done right, the chances for GDPR success are greatly enhanced. Here are a few areas to manage closely:
