Risk Profiling

In governance, Risk Profiling is a continuous process of identifying, analyzing, assessing, and prioritizing organizational risks, including financial, operational, and compliance risks, to develop effective management strategies and ensure informed decision-making and regulatory compliance.

What is Risk Profiling?

Risk profiling is a comprehensive process that includes identifying, analyzing, prioritizing, and managing organizational risks, ensuring compliance and adapting strategies to maintain operational resilience.

Identification of Risks

To understand potential vulnerabilities, they systematically identify potential risks across all aspects of the organization, including financial, operational, strategic, and compliance areas.

Risk Analysis and Assessment

They evaluate the identified risks to determine their likelihood and potential impact on the organization, categorizing them based on severity.

Risk Prioritization

Ranking risks according to their assessed severity and likelihood enables organizations to focus on the most critical risks that could affect their objectives.

Development of Management Strategies

They are formulating strategies and plans to mitigate, manage, or transfer identified risks through policy changes, control enhancements, or adopting new technologies.

Compliance and Regulatory Alignment

Ensuring that risk profiling and management practices align with relevant regulatory requirements, maintaining legal compliance across operations.

Ongoing Review and Adaptation

Continuously monitor the risk environment and update the risk profile to reflect organizational or external changes, ensuring resilience and adaptability.

Risk profiling in IGA enhances security, ensures compliance, enables efficient resource allocation, and supports proactive management by quantifying and prioritizing identity-related risks.

Assigning a Risk Score

By quantifying the risk associated with specific users, roles, or access rights, organizations can prioritize their security and compliance efforts more effectively.

Enhanced Security Posture

Risk profiling identifies vulnerabilities within the identity and access management framework, allowing for targeted security enhancements that protect against breaches and unauthorized access.

Improved Compliance Management

Enables organizations to align their identity governance practices with regulatory requirements by identifying and addressing compliance-related risks.

Efficient Resource Allocation

With clear insights into risk levels, companies can allocate their security resources more efficiently, focusing efforts on areas with the highest risk scores.

Proactive Risk Management

Identifying potential risks before they materialize enables proactive measures, reducing the likelihood of security incidents and operational disruptions.

Data-Driven Decision Making

Risk scores and profiles provide actionable intelligence, supporting informed decision-making regarding access controls, policy adjustments, and overall identity governance strategies.

How we are different?

Dynamic Risk Scoring

The ability to continuously assess and update risk scores based on real-time data, adapting to changes in user behaviour, access patterns, and external threats.

Comprehensive Risk Indicators

We utilize various indicators, including user roles, access levels, and activity logs, to generate a nuanced and accurate assessment of potential risks.

Integrated Compliance Framework

We seamlessly incorporate regulatory compliance requirements into the risk assessment, ensuring risk scores reflect adherence to relevant laws and standards.

Predictive Risk Analysis

We employ advanced analytics and machine learning to assess current risk levels and predict future vulnerabilities, allowing organizations to address potential threats preemptively.

Case Study

Optimizing Identity and Access Management with Risk-Profiled Access using BAAR-IGA at a bank


The customer, a mid-sized financial institution, faced the challenge of balancing security and efficiency in managing user access to sensitive resources. Traditional identity and access management (IAM) approaches could not dynamically assess and adapt access privileges based on risk factors, leaving The Bank vulnerable to security breaches and compliance gaps. To address these concerns, The Bank implemented BAAR-IGA (Business-driven, Adaptive, Risk-based Identity Governance and Administration), leveraging its risk-profiled access capabilities to enhance security posture while ensuring operational agility.


Static Access Controls: The Bank relied on static access controls that granted users predefined permissions regardless of contextual factors such as user behaviour, device status, or location.
Compliance Concerns: Static access controls led to compliance challenges as they failed to adapt to evolving regulatory requirements and industry standards.
Security Risks: Lack of dynamic risk assessment left The Bank susceptible to insider threats, unauthorized access, and data breaches, undermining customer trust and regulatory compliance.
Operational Inefficiencies: Manual access provisioning and de-provisioning processes were time-consuming, error-prone, and resource-intensive, hindering operational efficiency and productivity.


The Bank implemented BAAR-IGA’s risk-profiled access capabilities to address its IAM challenges effectively:

Dynamic Risk Assessment: BAAR-IGA enabled real-time risk assessment by evaluating contextual factors such as user behaviour, device posture, and transaction patterns to assign risk scores to access requests dynamically.
Risk-Profiled Access: Based on risk scores, BAAR-IGA dynamically adjusted access privileges, granting higher permissions for low-risk activities and imposing additional controls or restrictions for high-risk transactions.
Adaptive Controls: The solution incorporated adaptive access controls that dynamically adjusted based on changing risk levels, ensuring access privileges aligned with the evolving threat landscape and business requirements.
Automated Risk Remediation: BAAR-IGA automated risk remediation processes, such as access review and revocation, to promptly address high-risk access situations and enforce least privilege principles.
Continuous Monitoring and Analytics: The solution provided constant monitoring and analytics capabilities to detect anomalies, suspicious activities, and security events in real-time, enabling proactive risk mitigation and incident response.


Enhanced Security Posture: Implementing risk-profiled access with BAAR-IGA strengthened The Bank’s security posture by enabling adaptive access controls and dynamic risk assessment, reducing the likelihood of security breaches and insider threats.
Improved Compliance: By aligning access privileges with risk profiles and dynamically adapting to regulatory requirements, The Bank achieved better compliance with industry standards and regulations such as GDPR, PCI-DSS, and SOX.
Operational Efficiency: Automated risk remediation and dynamic access controls streamlined access management processes, reducing manual efforts, minimizing errors, and improving operational efficiency.
Business Agility: BAAR-IGA’s risk-profiled access capabilities empowered The Bank to balance security and flexibility, supporting business agility and innovation while maintaining regulatory compliance and data security.


The implementation of BAAR-IGA’s risk-profiled access capabilities enabled The Bank to address its IAM challenges effectively, enhancing security, compliance, and operational efficiency. By dynamically assessing and adapting access privileges based on risk profiles, The Bank strengthened its security posture, improved regulatory compliance, and optimized operational processes, thereby fostering trust among customers and stakeholders while supporting business growth and innovation.
