The Essential Pillars of PIAM
- Converged cyber-physical onboarding and offboarding
- Self-service access request across the enterprise
- Automated physical access reviews and re-certification
- Identity Intelligence and risk scoring
1. Converged Cyber-Physical Onboarding and Offboarding
Another opportunity lies in linking PACS with IT directories that track who has access to corporate applications and resources such as the network, email, messaging, databases, etc. Some examples include LDAP – Lightweight Directory Access Protocol and AD – Active Directory.
Creating this critical connection delivers visibility into an individual’s role in the organization, their job function, the amount of facility access they need to get their job done as well as the amount of system or application access and authorization required to be productive while adhering to security policies.

4. Identity Intelligence and Risk Scoring
Identity Intelligence technology is powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning in combination with an active policy enforcement rules-based engine to reveal critical risk insights. For example, John Q is a control room worker who has been following a steady shift pattern of working 9-5, Monday through Friday. He suddenly starts showing up at midnight on a Saturday and uses his work badge to access a secure area. The deviation from the pattern of 9-5 on weekdays and the exception to the rules – that people with John’s role should not be accessing a room that stores critical assets – sets off an automated series of alerts to management stakeholders including security personnel.
The automatic baseline of identity profiles allows Identity Intelligence technology to quickly sort through millions of events to detect anomalies and trends for an effective response to potential malicious behavior and policy violations.
