Arrow’s approach to Identity Access Management

In this month’s Arrow Leadership Call, “Implementing World-Class Identity and Access Management Solutions,” you’ll not only learn what IAM is, but you will also hear about Arrow’s own IAM strategy. Sameer Sait, CISO at Arrow Electronics, takes the stage and shares his thoughts on IAM and provides a glimpse into Arrow’s vision for their own Security Operations Center. Key IAM market trends, including Cloud expansion, safeguarding/securing super users and access governance are reviewed.

Sait discusses IAM as both compliance and lifecycle management, as well as the importance of these elements:

  • Central user repository
  • Authentication
  • User provisioning
  • Access requests
  • Access certifications
  • Policy enforcement
  • Risk management

During the recorded webcast, Sait reviews the framework necessary to develop an IAM implementation strategy. He provides insight into Arrow’s current IAM state, goals and vision. Key themes include:

  • Standardization of IAM and compliance management
  • Secure cloud, mobile and social interactions
  • Insider threats and IAM governance
