What is Identity Governance and Administration in cyber security?

Manages policies and controls around user identities and access.

Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) is a set of processes and technologies that manage policies and controls around user identities and access within an organization. IGA systems govern user access based on defined policies, manage roles and entitlements, and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. This includes identity lifecycle management, access certification, and policy enforcement. Effective IGA helps organizations maintain security, achieve regulatory compliance, and reduce the risk of unauthorized access.
