[QUEZON CITY, 26 April 2024] — MDI Novare has embarked on a groundbreaking collaboration with the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) to enhance security using Identity Access Management (IAM). The project was officially launched at the BIR head office in Quezon City, marking the beginning of a strategic partnership aimed at bolstering the Bureau’s data protection measures.

The project, which aligns with the BIR’s commitment to implementing robust security measures for the protection of personal and sensitive information, will focus on enhancing access control across all applications and processing systems. This initiative is part of the Bureau’s ongoing efforts to comply with the Data Privacy Act and improve its Information Security Risk Assessment Implementation.

Key areas addressed by the project include:

  • Compliance with the Data Privacy Act on Access Control
  • Delegation of approval of access to the Revenue Data Center and Security Management Division
  • Tracking of access permissions and changes
  • Implementation of separation of duties and security access matrix
  • Management of identity lifecycle from provisioning to de-provisioning
  • Implementation of self-service capability for system access nationwide
  • User certification for reviewing user entitlements and access privileges

For MDI Novare, this project represents a significant opportunity to strengthen its partnership with the BIR and expand its footprint in the agency. With a history of successful collaborations, including multiple projects with the BIR, MDI Novare is committed to delivering exceptional results and ensuring client satisfaction.
