Audit-Proof management of access rights

HUK-COBURG meets BaFin requirements regarding group-wide re-certification thanks to Computacenter.

Computacenter has introduced an Identity Management (IM) solution for HUK-COBURG, to meet BaFin auditory requirements.




In accordance with the requirements of the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin), HUK-COBURG had to carry out a Group-wide recertification of the entitlements by 1 July 2021. For this purpose, it was necessary to ensure a regular review of the access rights of employees. The persons responsible for the rights must be able to approve or revoke IT access rights accordingly.




Computacenter analysed the existing environment and created a concept for the different recertification types to be used as well as for the connection of the source systems. At the same time, the IT service provider provided support in classifying the authorisations, cleaning up the source systems, and implementing the identity management solution (IM).




Thanks to the new solution, HUK-COBURG was able to meet the BaFin requirements on time. In the new IM solution, all rights to be checked are always mirrored from the connected systems. The interface and handling are highly user-friendly. In addition, the insurer benefits from a scalable reporting system which provides a good overview of their current workflow. Escalation and reminder mechanisms alert respective employees of any open ‘to-dos’.


We have been working successfully with Computacenter for a long time. Our contacts are always happy to think outside the box and establish relationships with reference customers. We’ve already reviewed several other successful case studies.
