These pivotal functions ensure that every customer interaction and identity verification is performed in alignment with stringent regulatory standards, safeguarding both the customer’s trust and the company’s reputation.

What is Audit and Compliance?

Audit and compliance are critical business functions that ensure organizations adhere to internal policies and external regulations, promoting operational integrity, financial accuracy, and ethical conduct.

IGA Fundamentals

In the realm of IGA, audit and compliance are intertwined processes critical for monitoring and enforcing the management of digital identities and access rights, ensuring adherence to internal policies and external regulatory demands.

Auditing Within IGA

Upholding Standards

Compliance with IGA involves ensuring organizational practices align with relevant legal and regulatory standards, including managing digital identities, access rights, and data protection regulations.

Policy Enforcement

Effective IGA compliance requires developing and enforcing robust policies and procedures that govern digital identity and access management, necessitating regular updates to adapt to evolving regulatory landscapes.

Case Study

Strengthening Audit and Compliance for Logical Access Management with BAAR-IGA at a mid-sized bank


The customer, a mid-sized financial institution, recognized the critical importance of robust audit and compliance practices to ensure the integrity and security of its IT infrastructure. However, managing logical access to sensitive systems and data while meeting regulatory requirements posed significant challenges. To address these concerns, The Bank implemented BAAR-IGA (Business-driven, Adaptive, Risk-based Identity Governance and Administration), leveraging its audit and compliance features to enhance visibility, enforce policies, and streamline access management processes.


Lack of Visibility: The Bank lacked comprehensive visibility into user access rights and activities across its IT environment, making it difficult to track and monitor access for audit and compliance purposes.
Manual Access Reviews: Manual access review processes were time-consuming, error-prone, and often failed to provide a holistic view of user entitlements, leading to compliance gaps and security risks.
Regulatory Compliance: The Bank struggled to comply with regulatory mandates such as GDPR, PCI-DSS, and SOX, which require stringent controls and audit trails for logical access management.
Insufficient Controls: Inadequate access controls and segregation of duties (SoD) policies left The Bank vulnerable to insider threats, unauthorized access, and data breaches, undermining trust and regulatory compliance.


The Bank implemented BAAR-IGA’s audit and compliance features to address its logical access management challenges effectively:

Centralized Access Governance: BAAR-IGA provided a centralized platform for managing user access rights, roles, and permissions across heterogeneous IT systems and applications, ensuring consistency and control.
Automated Access Reviews: The solution automated access review processes, scheduling periodic reviews based on predefined criteria and generating reports to identify and remediate access anomalies and policy violations.
Segregation of Duties (SoD) Controls: BAAR-IGA enforced SoD policies by identifying and mitigating conflicts of interest or privilege escalation risks, ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements and preventing potential fraud or abuse.
Real-time Monitoring and Alerts: The solution offered real-time monitoring and alerts for suspicious activities, unauthorized access attempts, and policy violations, enabling prompt incident response and risk mitigation.
Comprehensive Audit Trails: BAAR-IGA generated complete audit trails and logs of user access activities, changes to access permissions, and administrative actions, facilitating compliance audits and forensic investigations.


Enhanced Visibility: Implementing BAAR-IGA improved visibility into user access rights and activities, enabling The Bank to monitor and audit access more effectively for compliance and security purposes.
Streamlined Compliance: Automated access reviews, SoD controls, and comprehensive audit trails helped The Bank achieve better compliance with regulatory mandates and industry standards, reducing the risk of non-compliance penalties and reputational damage.
Improved Security Posture: BAAR-IGA’s real-time monitoring and alerts enhanced The Bank’s ability to detect and respond to security incidents promptly, reducing the likelihood of insider threats, unauthorized access, and data breaches.
Operational Efficiency: Automated access review processes and centralized access governance streamlined access management operations, reducing manual efforts, minimizing errors, and improving efficiency.
Enhanced Trust and Reputation: The Bank’s proactive approach to audit and compliance with BAAR-IGA bolstered customer trust, regulatory confidence, and market reputation, demonstrating a commitment to security and integrity.


The implementation of BAAR-IGA’s audit and compliance features empowered The Bank to strengthen its logical access management practices, enhance visibility, enforce policies, and streamline compliance efforts. By automating access reviews, enforcing SoD controls, and providing real-time monitoring and alerts, BAAR-IGA enabled The Bank to achieve better regulatory compliance, mitigate security risks, and improve operational efficiency, thereby safeguarding its reputation and fostering trust among customers and stakeholders.
