Identity & Access Management


Enterprise / IndustryNational grid network operator / Energy
Period4/2012 – 3/2014
Role in the projectOverall project management for the connection of business-critical information systems to the central Identity & Access Management System (IAM)
Activities in the project
  • Takeover of the running project
  • Safekeeping of internal resources availability and repair of critical legacy (defects and open issues)
  • Clarification of the framework conditions and processes with the product manufacturers and external service providers. Sourcing of project-critical Identity Access Management (IAM) specialists
  • Division of the project into fundamental issues, business requirements and technical implementation as well as preparation of the IAM Roadmap
  • Installation of a more effective management for tasking, communication and risk over the entire performance chain
  • Implementation of organisational and technical preconditions, coordination with the Information Security Officer, management of tests, clearances, rollouts, training courses and launches
  • Safekeeping of the technical implementation:
    • Standardised specifications and testing procedures;
    • Expansion of testing, integration and audit platforms;
    • Realisation, implementation and production status of work packages
  • Safekeeping of future connections, autonomously by the IAM-operation: standards and processes as well as external service providers as an "extended workbench"

Effective and comprehensive:
