“Access … Granted” – Identity and Access Management for Insurance Companies in the Context of VAIT

With the "Insurance Supervisory Requirements for IT", VAIT for short, the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) has defined a large number of complex requirements for the organization, processes and systems of insurance IT. In this webinar, we will discuss the impact of VAIT on Identity and Access Management (IAM) and how you can implement the complex requirements of VAIT in a compliant manner.

Webinar in Cooperation With Horváth & Partners GmbH

With the "Insurance Supervisory Requirements for IT" (VAIT), the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) is once again underlining the significantly increased importance of IT in insurance companies.

Against the background of the VAIT, there are two aspects in particular that insurance companies must take into account in implementation initiatives within the IAM:

  1. Constantly increasing audit intensity of IAM for core processes and standards

  2. Considerable room for interpretation between "economically sensible" and "necessary" implementation activities

Together with our partner Horváth & Partners GmbH, we will use practical examples to discuss stumbling blocks and success factors for insurance companies and how the complex requirements resulting from VAIT can be implemented in an IAM system.
