Security is now an integrated discipline in the Columbus service portfolio. We combine Identity & Access Management with Cybersecurity and provide the best foundation for you to build a secure business.

Identity is the ultimate attack surface. But it is also the ultimate control surface.

    Digitization is on the rise and pervasive, and information technology (IT) has evolved into infrastructure that is critical to individuals, organizations and society as a whole. Consequently, protecting digital assets is becoming more complex and (business) critical than ever.

    The cyber threat landscape is constantly changing and requires you to have the insight, experience, and expertise to predict and prevent malicious attacks against your organization. At the same time organizations are constantly challenged to become more agile, increase efficiency and offer improved digital services. 

    This is where we can help.

    Best practice security starts with your digital identities

    74% of all breaches include the human element, with people being involved either via error, misuse of privilege, use of stolen credentials or social engineering. 83% of breaches involve external actors, and the primary motivation for attacks continues to be overwhelmingly financially driven, corresponding to 95% of breaches*. It therefore makes perfect sense to build and expand your security strategy and landscape around protection of digital identities that have access to your digital infrastructure.

     At Columbus, we provide you with the strongest security foundation, by combining Identity & Access Management with leading Cybersecurity and business disciplines.

    Identity & Access Management goes hand in hand with Cybersecurity


    This refers to the set of technologies, processes and practices that protect companies’ digital infrastructure against cyber-attacks, including unauthorized access.

    Digital identity

    Access to a company’s digital infrastructure is controlled by the digital identity. We use the digital identity to (1) verify the entity’s authenticity and authority, and (2) enable and secure digital interactions.

    Identity & Access Management

    Identity & Access Management (IAM) includes people, processes, and technology. It allows the digital identity to access the right resources with the right authorizations – depending on context, relevance, and time.


    IAM is a crucial discipline for any company, it is increasingly business-oriented and therefore requires business skills, and not just technical expertise. Companies with mature IAM competencies can reduced cybersecurity risk – and cost – significantly, as well as become more efficient and agile in supporting business initiatives.

    IAM Assessments – understanding and optimizing your protection landscape

    Over time, you are likely to have purchased and installed numerous security solutions – without really keeping track of your actual need for them. This leads to inefficiency, creates potential security risk and undermines your security budget. In the world of digital security, strength does not lie in numbers, but in smart, strategic, and streamlined security strategies. We can help you with that!

    For example: If you have an Identity & Access Management provisioning through your Microsoft contract, we can give you a full picture of your actual security situation and clear recommendations as to how you should shape not only your IT security licensing, but the entire configuration of your security landscape.
