“Identity and access management is an essential element to ensure a high level of information security. IAM projects are becoming popular because of various regulations, laws or constraints.

IAM project is a business project and has to be really supported by the top management. 2. Project governance is essential. 3. Try to keep it simple – be pragmatic.” Jules Jerome, Head of Inspection Line, Banque Internationale à Luxembourg
