Digital identity framework

Framework overview

The digital identity framework provides IT and security leaders with a toolkit to drive their IAM strategy. It addresses key governance and administration, identity management, authorization, and access and authentication functions to support the planning process — beginning with the end in mind.

Governance and administration

Starting with governance and administration, identify the standards with which your organization will need to comply, including the reports you’ll need to do so.

An effective solution will provide dashboards from which you can track which staff are accessing which applications. For healthcare organizations, this enables you to monitor and generate audit summaries for patient privacy and drug diversion — for example, reports of EPCS activities as part of a DEA-adherent process.

Identity management

Next is identity management, where IT and HR specify your sources of truth for users and plan for the provisioning and lifecycle management of human and non-human entities, including mobile and IoT/IoMT devices in hybrid environments.

An IAM solution must integrate closely with an organization’s identity sources for diverse roles, as well as the numerous applications and workflows found in today’s complex environments. The effective IAM solution also helps manage risk by providing the tools needed to adjust access entitlements based on continuous monitoring and anomaly detection, such as access to patient records and controlled substances for healthcare organizations.

Authorization

The authorization stage is where policies and access rules are built into the IAM system to govern which data and applications are to be accessed by which users according to their roles, rights, and responsibilities.

In many organizations, an employee may take on different roles that change from shift to shift as staff rotates. This complex environment of “one beating heart (or identity), multiple roles” demands appropriate authorization to access the tools needed without delay.

Authentication and access

The final step is authentication and access, which is the execution phase. Here, users are authenticated and granted access to cloud, on-premises, and mobile applications used on a variety of endpoints.

Access control and authentication functions need to sync with user workflows to enable productivity. For healthcare, this means enabling real-time patient care. Employees use a variety of applications on a multitude of endpoints — from shared workstations to mobile and IoT/IoMT devices. An IAM solution must integrate closely with these varied applications and devices to quickly authenticate and grant access to the mission-critical resources a user requires.
