Sun - Deloitte Compliance road show

Sun and Deloitte are organizing a roadshow at Delhi and Mumbai on Identity compliance. The details of the roadshow are:

Achieving Compliance and Efficiency - through Identity & Access Audits

The recent proliferation of Fraud, Regulatory and Compliance requirements have increased the cost of compliance, created audit fatigue, and taken valuable cycles away from risk management, compliance, information technology & lines of businesses.

Every organization faces the need to have defined, effective and efficient processes to manage against Fraudulent or Unauthorized Access to their critical business assets and information, by • Granting Right Access to Right People “in-time” • Changing Access “in-time” when users exit the organization, or change role & responsibilities • Performing periodic review of ‘Who has access to what’ • Performing periodic review of Segregation of Duties

To address these needs, Deloitte and Sun have developed a business aligned approach and methodology, which integrates leading Identity and Access Management practices with industry leading IAM technology. Our solution will enhance the quality, automation and efficiency of your access audit, compliance and attestation processes.

We are pleased to invite you to an exclusive invitation only event in which we will present our Point-of-View on how you can Manage Access and meet your Audit & Compliance requirements and secure your critical business assets and information.
